Learning, Growing, and Thriving at the Y

reading-adult-kids-bookWe believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for quality of life. Because of the Y community, kids are taking more interest in learning and making smarter life choices. At the Y, kids learn their ABC’s, learn to share, learn about sportsmanship, and most importantly, learn how to be themselves. That makes for confident kids today and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.
