Tell us your Y story

Everyone Belongs at the Y. You Should Too!

The Y has something for everyone!  We’d like to know about your experiences here and how it’s impacted your or your family’s life and well-being.  Please share your Y story with us by emailing Cassie Lloyd at [email protected].  Once we receive it, we may contact you for further information or a video interview to learn more. 

Here are some story guideline suggestions: 

  • Inspirational stories of triumph that demonstrate how the Y provided a program, facility, resources or staff support to help you and your family.  The story should also demonstrate the Y’s mission in some way through either Youth Development, Healthy Living or Social Responsibility.
  • It demonstrates the role that the Y played in your or your family’s success in overcoming specific circumstances, challenges and issues, a disability, met a need, or how you adopted a healthy lifestyle.  It should be compelling and unique.  There are numerous stories throughout the Y, but we’re looking for the ones that dramatically stand out and have a positive “wow” factor.
  • The subject of the story must be willing to share it with the community-at-large and be able to articulately tell it and present a positive image.  If used, the story will likely be captured on video and be edited for various communications channels to encourage others to belong to the Y.
