It’s International Youth Day and the Y celebrates youth everyday! We believe healthy minds and experiences are just as important as healthy bodies! Through our various programs such as Youth in Government, Global Service and Exchange, and Black & Latino Achievers, our future world leaders can get their foot in the door. At the Y we are committed to helping our young people learn, grow, and thrive. As a Global Center of Excellence, the Capital District YMCA is committed to helping young people around the world. Children are the future of our world, and we invest our time into them so we can ensure a safe world for everyone.
