YOUTH DEVELOPMENT
7th Grade Membership

Are there 7th grade students in YOUR community who could benefit from a more structured, nurturing afterschool environment? If so, the Pennsylvania State Alliance has an idea for you!

The 7th Grade Membership initiative encourages local Y’s to provide a pathway to membership for all 7th grade students in their communities. In some cases, FREE memberships are being offered where students can access to the Y facilities, programs and services.

Caring adult role models are needed to help empower these youth to live healthy lifestyles and make responsible choices at this very critical stage of their life.

The Alliance’s 7th Grade Initiative Task Force has created a rubric to help local Y’s design and implement a successful program where 7th grade boys and girls can receive the support and encouragement they need to become productive young adults!

For more information about how YOUR Y can be involved in this exciting initiative, please contact the Alliance.
