3rd Annual YMCA Advocacy Week – August 1-5, 2016

YMCAs will once again have the opportunity to invite local, state and federal elected officials into their facilities next August during the 3rd annual YMCA Advocacy Week! Last year, over 25 associations hosted advocacy events and countless elected leaders attended to learn more about the work of the Y and to celebrate the accomplishments of local Ys in serving their communities.

The State Alliance will once again be preparing an Advocacy Week Toolkit to assist Ys in planning, organizing and implementing a successful advocacy event.

For more information, please contact Alliance Executive Director, David John, at or (717) 805-1300.
