For Youth Development
We engage nearly 9 million children annually to give them the best possible chance to learn and reach their full potential.
The Guzmans consider the Y their second home. In addition to enrolling Abila in preschool and swimming lessons, Alex coaches soccer. The family is a regular at most of the Y's family nights and in the gym. Family time at the Y allows them to connect with each other and other families.
We believe real progress is only possible when we work together — as a community. The Y provides opportunities for neighbors to understand and help each other toward a better future in small ways and large.
You may think you know the Y, but from A-to-Z, we’re nurturing the potential of youth, improving the country’s health and well-being, and giving back to support our neighbors.
To find out how the Y is so much more, watch our story featuring the shadow dance troupe, Catapult, from NBC’s “America’s Got Talent”.
Summertime is an ideal time for children to learn a new skill or hobby. But those skills often fall by the wayside when the new school year comes around. The Y's camp expert offers some advice to parents. OrlandoSentinel.com
