7th Grade Membership Initiative
The Y has a long standing tradition of adapting its services to the changing needs and interests of its community. We are proud to launch the 7th Grade Membership Initiative as a way to better engage, educate and connect to our youth right when they need it most. Not only will this provide a safe environment, but it will enable students to grow in spirit, mind and body. Visit our 7th Grade Membership Initiative page for more information.
