7th Grade initiative

7th Grade initiative

All children have enormous potential! At the GWVA  YMCA locations, we work hard every day to help our children set and achieve their personal and educational goals. We work to develop an environment in which children have a sense of belonging and feel comfortable exploring new and current interests and passions; all while building stronger friendships and creating new ones. We practice Y-based and community-wide volunteerism with our children as a way to give back to and serve our community. Children in the 7 GI program will experience this and much more as they become part of the GWVA  YMCA and learn the Core Y Values we feel so passionate about.
