Rebuilding New York City must start with our young people. Together, we can help our kids find: Wonder. Inspiration. Surprise. Curiosity. Happiness. Adventure. Friendship. Excitement. Normalcy.

Every child should have the opportunity to HEAL, LEARN, AND PLAY, but for many families youth enrichment programs are unaffordable, especially this year.

Join us to transform futures:

  • 10,000 kids transported from behind their screens and devices and into a world of friends and opportunities during Summer Day Camp 2021.
  • 95% graduation rate (compared to 77% citywide) from Teen College Readiness and Leadership Programs.
  • $38 million of economic earning potential resulting from the reliable childcare of Afterschool Programs.

As the national leader in childcare, we know the importance of supporting the emotional needs of children and are dedicated to infusing all lessons and activities with social-emotional learning and trauma-informed practices.

Together, we can meet this moment. We are New Yorkers. We are Y!

Growing in the Bronx
