My Y Story...


I am a young adult struggling to turn my life around. I have many fond memories of being active in the Y as a child, so I immediately thought of the Y to help me get back on track physically, emotionally and mentally. A bonus is the positive influence and experience the Y has been for my 8 year-old daughter. I am a shy person, yet the Y staff and members make me feel comfortable. I know this is the place my daughter and I belong. Thanks to the Strong Kids Campaign, we are on the right track. ~Jarrod
