We believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for life. Because of the Y, more young people in neighborhoods around the nation are taking a greater interest in learning and making smarter life choices.
At the Y, children and teens learn values and positive behaviors. They're able to explore their unique talents and interests, helping them realize their potential. That makes for confident kids today and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.
Activate Youth provides children new ways of thinking when it comes to exercise, it will help them to make exercise enjoyable and something they look forward to!
Swimming is a fun and enjoyable activity for children and adults alike. It’s an easy way to stay physically active and improve strength, flexibility, and stamina. The Buckeye Valley Family YMCA is committed to providing as many opportunities as possible for everyone to swim and learn water safety practices.
With so many demands on today’s families, parents need all the support they can get. That’s why child care at the Y is about more than looking after kids. It’s about nurturing their development, by providing a safe place to learn foundational skills, develop healthy, trusting relationships and building self-reliance through the Y core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.
