California YMCA Youth and Family Health Opportunity Program
The California State Alliance works closely with local YMCAs to strengthen communities. Through our Youth and Family Health Opportunity Program, the Alliance equitably funds local YMCAs to subsidize free access to YMCA health-promoting programs and services for low-income youth and their families, including:
- youth sports
- wellness memberships
- day and resident camps
- aquatics/drowning prevention
- anything that generally helps the most at-risk kids and families achieve and maintain healthy body, mind and spirit
We welcome partnerships with philanthropic institutions and state/federal agencies to assist families throughout California. To find out how to support this program, please contact Kris Lev-Twombly, CEO + President of the California State Alliance of YMCAs, at email@example.com.
Working For Good
No matter what role you take on at the Y, you’ll show up each day with the satisfaction of knowing your contributions are helping to empower young people, improve health and well-being, and inspire action in your community.
