The Greater Green Bay YMCA is home to the Youth Outreach Team, who focus on reaching into our communities and meeting young people where they are at. Typically found in middle schools and high schools throughout Green Bay, the team is proud to partner closely with Green Bay Area Public Schools, Howard-Suamico School District, GRACE, and many others. Supported by grants and gifts from our community and the YMCA, the team brings its outcomes to our young people through the Y Achievers and Youth in Government programs. Our team strives to bring the opportunity of our vision to every young person in the Greater Green Bay Community.
