WON'T YOU HELP THE CHILDREN, ADULTS AND FAMILIES IN YOUR COMMUNITY?
HOW WE HELP
"The Y's Mission Statement - For Youth Development, Healthy Living, and Social Responsibility - has been the embodiment of our family's experience at the YMCA since our joining 10 years ago.
As members, we were always greeted with smiles, warmth, and respect and the encouragement to participate in all the Y had to offer, including special needs classes/programs. Both children had opportunities to exercise, make friends, and grow as young men in a healthy environment.
In the years since, both my son Alex and I have had the privilege of working here at the Y. I was fortunate to be given the opportunity to begin a "second career" as an instructor in the Aquatics and Fitness Departments while working through some challenging times after losing my husband. As a staff member and parent of a Special Needs child, I am pleased and privileged to be involved with classes being offered to the Special Needs community, for whom the YMCA has always been a strong supporter.
My older son Alex, now an Eagle Scout and college student, had performed community service here while in his teens and then given the opportunity to work here at the YMCA these past few years. He has enjoyed working in the basketball gym as a gym supervisor and basketball scorekeeper for the Y's Men's Basketball League.
I'm very grateful to my superiors, coworkers, and members of the Y for giving me a "home away from home" that has consistently provided the friendship and support to deal with the daily challenges we all face, as well as an environment promoting mental and physical wellness for myself and my family."
Healthy U is a collaborative partnership between the New Jersey YMCA State Alliance and the Horizon Foundation for New Jersey with the goal of combating childhood obesity through nutrition education, physical education and family involvement.
At all of the YMCA of Western Monmouth County's preschool and school age child care programs, Healthy U is woven into the curriculum to ensure fun, inclusive physical activities every day.
