BRINGING AWARENESS TO WATER SAFETY & DROWNING PREVENTION
The YMCA of South Florida continues to make water safety and drowning prevention a priority. Every day, we partner with organizations and members of the community to get the word out about the need for all kids to know how to swim. Take a look at some of the ways we are getting the word out and making a huge impact.
BANK OF AMERICA STUDENT LEADERS DEVELOP SKILLS AT YMCA
Through a partnership with Bank of America, the YMCA of South Florida hosted four Bank of America Student Leaders for a very successful summer. The Bank of America Student Leaders Program is awarded to high school juniors and seniors, engaged in community service. It includes a paid summer internship at a local nonprofit and leadership training at a summit in Washington, D.C. The eight-week, paid summer internship allows juniors and seniors in the program to develop important workforce skills and learn to build financial security at an early age.
ANNUAL SUPPORT CAMPAIGN UPDATE
The 2019 Annual Support Campaign is at 81% of Goal, raising more than $701,000 of the $851,000 goal. The Greater Hollywood YMCA has joined Homestead and L.A. Lee YMCAs as Goal Busters. Teams will continue to raise funds to ensure that kids and families can participate in YMCA experiences like swim lessons and youth sports programs, and wellness and exercise activities.
Donations to the campaign can be made at ymcasouthflorida.org/give.
