The YMCA of Pierce and Kitsap Counties is in the second year of fulfilling its 2020 Vision, and is poised to make tremendous progress on four areas of focus: Support Youth, Strengthen Families, Serve and Build Communities, and Inspire Healthier Lifestyles.
Specifically, the YMCA is focusing on three capital projects – the Haselwood Family YMCA in Silverdale, a YMCA in Sumner, and a new dining hall at Camp Seymour on the Key Peninsula – as well as three program areas – youth obesity, teen outreach, and mission emphasis.
Here are a few things the YMCA will do in 2010:
- Provide $3.5 million in financial assistance.
- Break ground on the new Haselwood Family YMCA on the Central Kitsap Community Campus in Silverdale this summer.
- Serve 1,100 children daily at 47 schools in before and after school programs.
- Share resident camp experiences with 1,500 campers who will visit Camp Seymour this summer.
- Engage 7,600 students from 84 school districts through the Outdoor Environmental Education program at Camp Seymour during the school year.
- Serve 1,800 active duty military personnel and their families, with 700 of them receiving memberships at no cost them through a partnership with the Department of Defense.
- Keep 1,000 teens out of trouble every weekend through YMCA Teen Late Nite, and get 700 teens disconnected from the juvenile court system through Friends & Servants.
- Record more than 60,000 volunteer hours.
- Raise $1.3 million for our annual Strong Kids Campaign, 100 percent of which is given back to the community through financial assistance.
- Raise $15 million for the Haselwood Family YMCA Capital Campaign, set to open in 2011.
- Raise $7 million for the Sumner YMCA Capital Campaign, set to open in 2013.
