What’s Happening at the Y
YMCA Junior Youth and Government Program
Congratulations to the 18 middle school students who competed at the 4th Annual YMCA Junior Youth and Government State competition in Austin, Texas during the weekend of February 28th- March 2nd. Students in the JYG program from Martin, Driscoll, Baker, and Metro Prep middle schools competed against over 300 students from YMCAs across the state in legislative events.
MEND Program at the YMCA
MEND is an evidence-based healthy lifestyle programs that empowers 7-13 year olds, with the support of their families, to reach and maintain a healthy weight. It does this by helping families change unhealthy attitudes about food and activity (Mind), keep physically active on a regular basis (Exercise), learn how to choose foods that are healthy, tasty and nutritious (Nutrition), and take action to maintain a healthy lifestyle – for life (Do It!).
A brand new MEND program is starting at the YMCA on March 29th! This will be a 10-week program with classes scheduled two
times each week; one class on Saturday mornings and the other class on Tuesday evenings. Contact Marisa Ramon, our Youth Development Director, to see if you qualify!
