7th Grade Initiative

What is 7th Grade Initiative?

7th Grade Initiative is a program that provides a free YMCA membership to 7th graders at specific schools across the region. The goal of this program is to inspire youth to discover their passions, develop a healthy lifestyle, and gain the assets needed to avoid risky behaviors in order to succeed in school and life.

We currently serve select middle schools in D2, D38 and D11 by providing programs at our Downtown, Southeast and Tri-Lakes YMCA centers.
