HELP PROVIDE A SAFE SPACE FOR TEENS
Your generous gift to the 2018 YMCA at Glen Cove Annual Campaign can help keep our teens on the right track.
The Glen Cove YMCA Pre-teen and Teen Centers offer a safe unstructured place to socialize, explore interests and to develop new skills. Local teens and preteens are facing incredible challenges: school-related stress, risky behaviors, peer pressure, bullying, and gang violence. We know that too many young people are addicted to video screens and lead a sedentary life. Teens have too much unstructured time that often leads to negative behaviors.
The Glen Cove Y offers teens a chance to participate in positive activities under the helpful watch of adult role models. Activities include aquatics, fitness center workouts, dance, arts, sports and much more. All activities provided in Teen Center foster community and positive peer-to-peer support to teach healthy decisions and strong self-esteem within these contexts. And Teen Center is FREE, thanks to donors like you.
