BENEFITING: YMCA of Greater New York
ORGANIZER: YMCA of Greater New York
EVENT: 2017 Annual Campaign
EVENT DATE: Jan 01, 2017
I am the Coordinator for the Youth and Sports Department here at the Greenpoint Y. When I first joined the team at the Greenpoint YMCA, I was so excited to be a part of one of the largest and oldest nonprofit organizations in NYC.
Being a former homeless adolescent, I learned the importance of being active in sports and enrichment programs. Those programs kept me from falling through the cracks of society. The activites I was involved in helped me become the person that I am today and gave me the opportunity to give back.
That said, youth has been my primary focus of my carreer. This organization has plenty of programs for youth, from enrichment to sports. When you donoate, you will be helping a child develop self esteem, leadership skills and social skills ,that they will carry with them throughout their lifetime.
