Youth Initiative Provides FREE Memberships to Local Underserved Kids*

Official Program Start Date: Monday, Feb. 14th, 2022
End Date: December 31, 2022

How to Sign Up

The YMCA is excited to offer free memberships until the end of 2022 to qualifying area youth thanks to a grant from the FCA Foundation, the charitable arm of Stellantis. The Youth Initiative program is geared to youth who, due to financial constraints, are unable to experience all the Y has to offer, from swimming and basketball to connecting with friends after school.

Scholarship forms are available at the YMCA membership desk. A parent or guardian must be present to submit an application and you must note “Youth Initiative” on the form. Youth Initiative registration is open and sports are still available. Apply today at the YMCA. 

New interactive technology!

We will have a Beam projection system in the Community Room with games designed to both get kids active and educate them in a fun way. Our youth members will have the opportunity to participate in custom-made games. This immersive experience will allow them to engage in active, educational play. This also brings families together, as the Beam system can be used by families of the youth members when the system is available.

Thank You

We would like to thank the FCA Foundation,  the charitable arm of Stellantis, for making this opportunity possible for the local youth of Howard County. With this generous grant the Y will make accessible the support and opportunities that empower these youth to reach their personal potential.
