2022 Advocacy Priorities


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 kris@ymcasofca.org.
