AAPI
"Never give up who you are to belong. I missed out on years of joy in celebrating with my parents our culture and traditions. I missed out on being me so that I could be more like my friends – an African American, a Peruvian, a Japanese, and an Asian Indian – perhaps we all gave up something thinking we had to be more like each other." - Trung Ho, YMCA Staff
Swim
Safety is a key element of summer fun. Both the Y's swim lessons and safety around water programs offer youth valuable safety lessons, and much more. Consider enrolling in one or both of the programs to keep you and your family safe this summer. 
Blood draw
The blood drives hosted by the YMCA of Silicon Valley will save 1,500 lives – equivalent to every student and faculty member at Mt. Pleasant High School.
