Youth Enrichment

Youth Enrichment

The Y nurtures youth through the development process, helping them realize their potential to be active, thriving and contributing members of society. GWVA YMCA is committed to strengthening the community through youth development by nurturing the potential of every child.   Post photos of your child on our Wilkes-Barre Family YMCA Facebook page or tag to tag us on Instagram (@wilkes_barrefamilyymca) using #YouthDevelopment #wbymca. A random photo will be chosen at the end of the session for a prize! Thank you so much for doing these programs with us!     For more information regarding Youth Enrichment  please contact: Ashlee Rittenhouse, Youth Director by phone at 570-970-5039 or by email: [email protected]
