CELEBRATE OUR COMMUNITY!

As a non-profit dedicated to strengthening community, the Y has a need to raise charitable funds. These funds ensure all community members have access to the Y and programs that address community needs in the areas of youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.

With a focus on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, strengthening communities is our cause. At the Y, we believe that lasting personal and social change happens when we all work together. Every day we work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to be healthy, confident, connected and secure.

When you give to the Y, you are funding life-changing programs that help thousands of children, adults and families to learn, grow and thrive in Ventura and Los Angeles Counties.

FIND MY GENIUS
FIND MY GENIUS GIRLS

Despite progressing at similar rates during the school year, low- and moderate-income children often fall behind their peers over the summer months. In 2022, Find My Genius afterschool enrichment was launched to continue the academic and social/emotional growth of scholars. The Southeast Ventura County YMCA is committed to ensuring all youth in our community realize their full potential.

The Y can reduce the achievement gap in our community. You can too!

Every day, two children die as a result of drowning. In fact, drowning is the second leading cause of death for children between the ages of 5 and 14. The Southeast Ventura County is committed to making drowning prevention a priority for our community.

At the Y, we believe we have something special—a sense of community. We believe everyone should have access to the Y, along with the programs and services that help us learn, grow and thrive. With your help, we were proud to share the Y with more than 1,187 children, seniors and families last year who otherwise might not have become part of our Y family.

YOUTH & GOVERNMENT and MODEL UNITED NATIONS (MUN)

The Y invites you to join other teenagers from your community for this amazing program! For 67 years, California YMCA Model Legislature & Court has brought together high school students and middle school students for this hands-on, unforgettable experience. Participants are trained in various government and court roles.

The California YMCA Model Legislature & Court teaches the values of democracy by creating citizen leaders from high school students, providing them with hands-on opportunities to experience government first hand, and to learn how to solve community problems through the democratic process. The program uses a variety of activities to build, encourage, and strengthen life assets and character traits that will help high school youth become involved, responsible adults.

Scholarships are given to to delegates to be a part of this incredible program. Delegates are 88% more likely to earn their bachelor’s degree than their peers.
