y kids inc.
Our motto is simple… Every kid deserves a Y.
Y Kids Inc. is an inclusion program through the YMCA of Greater Syracuse. Children of all ages and abilities are able to participate in any YMCA program based on their interests and parents desires. Trained, compassionate and enthusiastic staff help our Y kids blossom into the confident, unique and outstanding individuals they are meant to be.
In addition to support staff* the Y has developed specialized programs to meet community needs. Please contact your branch for more details.
Support staff may be arranged through the East and North Y's to children with a developmental disability who live at home with their families. These qualifications are specific to grant guidelines. Support staff
may also be arranged for an hourly fee to individuals seeking
additional hours of assistance as well as for individuals not qualifying
for free support based on grant guidelines. If the family chooses to
provide their own support in programs, the YMCA will add that support
person to the child’s membership to allow them to accompany the child to
the YMCA at any time.
Y Kids Inc. is made possible through financial support from AccessCNY, the Office for People with Developmental Disabilities and the YMCA of Greater Syracuse's Annual Support Campaign. We thank everyone for their confidence and support in our quest to meet our mission. IMMEDIATE Family
