Three templates for instagram stories

We wanted to take a moment to say: from the bottom of our hearts, thank you for being a part of our Y Family. With members, donors, employees, and a community like you, we can accomplish so much together. A few weeks ago, we created a toolkit for employees to show their pride in the YMCA on Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, and video calls too. Today, we're making the same kit available to you.

Are you proud of your YMCA and how we are helping the community? Here's how to share your spirit on social:

Three templates for instagram stories

Share On Your Story:

  1. There are a few ways you can add a photo to your Instagram story, so we won't go through them all here. Here directions from Instagram for help if you need it.

  2. To use the template, simply type in your answers. If you're using the bingo card, you can circle what workouts you've completed.

  3. Tag us @YMCASeattle and at least 1 friend who should fill out the template next. Post it!

  4. After you post, make sure to post a blank template so that your friend can screenshot it and fill it in.
