Middle School Initiative

What is Middle School Initiative?

Middle School Initiative is a program that provides a free YMCA membership to middle schoolers 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.
