DISCOVER YOUR Y

Youth
Join us in action during Child Abuse Prevention Month with Five Days of Action, June 7-11 2021. The YMCA is a proud sponsor of Five Days of Action, a national campaign focused on preventing child sexual abuse by educating adults and community organizations on how to create a safer place for children.

"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.
EPA 10 Year Event

#ByTheNumbers is a reflection on the Y’s impact over the past year, and a standard to meet and exceed as we continue to strengthen our community. The Y was founded on the principal of serving the most significant community needs, and this year was no exception. Though unquestionably a challenging year, with the support and effort our neighbors, donors, and partners the Y emerged stronger. Kid, families and seniors were fed nutritious meals, essential workers received childcare support, youth studying at home stayed on track with distance learning support, and Y staff were able to emotionally and physically support the most vulnerable, lonely, members of our community. Take a deeper look with #ByTheNumbers.
