We believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for life. Because of the Y, more young people in neighborhoods around our community are taking a greater interest in learning and making smarter life choices. At the Y, children and teens learn values and positive behaviors, and can explore their unique talents and interests, helping them realize their potential. That makes for confident kids today and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.
EARLY LEARNING (Penobscot Bay YMCA & Rockland Harbor YMCA)
With so many demands on today’s families, parents need all the support they can get. That’s why child care at the Y is about more than looking after kids. It’s about nurturing their development by providing a safe place to learn foundational skills, develop healthy, trusting relationships and build self-reliance through the Y values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.
EDUCATION AND LEADERSHIP
All kids have great potential. At the Y, we help them set and achieve their personal and educational goals. They gain confidence as they recognize the Y as a place where they belong and can feel comfortable exploring new interests and passions. Through leadership and academic enrichment programs we make sure that every child has an opportunity to envision a positive future and to take an active role in strengthening the community.
SWIM LESSONS, SWIM TEAM, GYMNASTICS and SPORTS AND PLAY (PBY & RHY)
The Y is the starting point for many youth to learn about becoming and staying active, and developing healthy habits they’ll carry with them throughout their lives. And the benefits are far greater than just physical health. Whether it’s gaining the confidence that comes from learning to swim or building the positive relationships that lead to good sportsmanship and teamwork, participating in sports at the Y is about building the whole child, from the inside out.
Camps at the Y share one thing—they’re about discovery. Kids have the opportunity to explore nature, find new talents, try new activities, gain confidence and make lasting friendships and memories.
