As a donor of the YMCA of Greater Seattle, your investments make it possible for us to fulfill our mission, building a community where all people, especially the young, are encouraged to develop their fullest potential in spirit, mind, and body. Join us this summer for these webinars to see how your investments are being put into action. You can register for some or all of the webinars below.
Fighting Hunger in the Pandemic and Beyond
Tuesday, July 20, 11am-12pm PST
Before the pandemic, 1 in 7 children were at risk of hunger. Now, that number is 1 in 4. Year-round, the Y provides meals and snacks to thousands of kids but now, at a time when resources for many families who were already vulnerable are shrinking and uncertain, access to healthy food is even harder. Join us to hear how your investments have helped expand our Hunger Initiatives to ensure kids and families have access to healthy meals and snacks. We will be joined by valued community partners, Y members and volunteers to show how we are working hand in hand to make sure no kid goes hungry during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.
Transforming Lives Through Civic Engagement and Education
Tuesday, August 24, 11am-12pm PST
Now more than ever, we need to encourage, enable, and listen to youth voices about the changes they wish to see in the world. YMCA Youth & Government teaches a new generation of passionate and dedicated citizens that we all have the power, opportunity, and responsibility to take care of our communities and neighbors. During the COVID pandemic YMCA Youth & Government had to pivot from traditional in-person conferences and tournaments to virtual events that continued to provide civic engagement and education. Join us to learn how participants, volunteers and donors demonstrated their ability to overcome the obstacles placed before them and continued to provide civic leadership, engagement, and education opportunities despite the pandemic.
