YMCA PROGRAMS SUPPORTED BY YMCA DAY OF GIVING:
The Catalyst Initiative supports the critical needs of North Texas families through free childcare for essential workers, virtual learning support, food distributions, blood drives, and more.
In YMCA Childcare programs, children have the opportunity to learn, grow, and thrive in a safe environment balancing academically rich activities and an enhanced focus on overall physical well-being.
SAFETY AROUND WATER
The YMCA Safety Around Water Apartment Swim Program helps reduce drowning by bringing crucial, life-saving swim skills directly to children in low-income apartment communities.
YMCA Youth Sports encourage and promote healthy kids, families, and communities by placing a priority on family involvement, healthy competition, teamwork, and respect.
With your support, we can provide financial assistance to those in need and help your neighbors combat obesity and chronic illness, improve mental health, and create healthy family habits.
Every child deserves an active summer full of caring role models, but not every family can afford to send their children to camp.
YOUTH & GOVERNMENT
In Youth and Government, teens take on the roles of legislators, judges, lawyers, lobbyists, elected officials, and journalists in order to become responsible citizens and future leaders of our nation.
Because childhood development is essential to the Y’s core values, children at our Ashford Rise School, Park South YMCA Preschool, and Plano YMCA Preschool are introduced to the important skills of building character values, self-esteem, and educational excellence.
STEM programming at the YMCA is helping all children reach their full potential by supporting their unique youth development journeys. These activities help nurture their curiosity, inspire creativity and teach them how to succeed.
