DAY OF SERVICE

Monday, January 18, 2021

This year in observance of the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday on Monday, January 18th, the Y’s traditional Day of Service, we encourage everyone to perform an Act of Kindness and post a photo or description on social media with #YSoFlo or #actsofkindness so we can spread happiness and positivity. Together we can make a difference!

We are excited and humbled to announce Reverend James M. Lawson will be our 2021 Inspirational Keynote Speaker. A key figure in the US Civil Rights movement, United Methodist pastor and activist James M. Lawson is known as the “architect of the nonviolence movement” in America. Lawson was a close ally to the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and trained the young people whose peaceful witness at lunch counters in the South sought to end racial discrimination in businesses and public places.

I HAVE A DREAM SCHOLARSHIP FUND

All children and teens deserve the opportunity to live up to their full potential. It can be quite difficult to figure out your place in the world. Having the right guidance and support can make a real difference in figuring out who you are and what you can achieve. The Y believes everyone deserves the ability to reach his or her full potential with dignity and pride. With your support, the impact can be endless. Every dollar make a difference!
