Parent Involvement

Join the Parent Advisory Council!

Parents are encouraged to participate in the Parent Advisory Council as a way to keep abreast of current issues and concerns at each YMCA Child Care and Afterschool Program Center. Parents and YMCA staff members come together to share ideas and suggestions regarding program content and quality, family activities, enrichment programs, and other items of interest.

Become a Volunteer!

Parents are welcome to attend field trips as a volunteer or to help at the program center with family events, daily activities and service projects. Parents are also invited to become a part of the YMCA Annual PARTNERS Campaign, where money is raised to provide scholarships for families who would not otherwise be able to participate in Y programs.

"The staff is excellent with the kids. My son really enjoys coming. He even gets upset if I pick him up early. That is very comforting for a parent."

The Y strengthens the local community by serving all.

It is a safe place to have my child go to after school. The director is very experienced. I am very lucky to have her stay the entire time my child has been at the YMCA. I think it was great to hae the older children help organize the sports for the younger kids. They still come up to my son and give him pictures and call him coach. It was a great way to develop leadership in the older kids.

The YMCA means so much to me. Ms. Tracy and Ms. Beth does so much for us. The YMCA is good because if we didn't, we would get less money because our parent would have to quit their job or get fired.

The staff at Moffett YMCA interact with the students in a very positive manner. Jamie is an excellent director and role model for the students.

My child loves Seacliff YMCA. She participates in Friday Fun nights, loves all activities like Track and Field and outside play time. She doesnít mind doing homework when asked and loves going in the morning on days when I have to go to work early. She has about 6 friends she now sees outside of school because of the YMCA. The teachers always correct a child in the most constructive way. We LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the fact we have a bathroom inside the bldg!!!!! My daughter often brushes her teeth at the Y when we have a really rushed morning. She also changes for dance class when I pick her up in the afternoon. LOVE Ms. Theresa!!!!! Such a great attitude!!!!

My Y story is when I went to Knott's Berry Farm with the YMCA. It was super fun and I lost track of time and all the coasters were awesome and most of my friends were there.

The YMCA is awesome because we get to play games and make stuff! I love to play games at the YMCA, the yard is cool and I could stay there all day. I like playing the Wii and pool.

I feel the people make the difference. Tasha, Claudia, Sarah and Tristen have made our family feel very welcome and they are very helpful. They all are very aware of the kids needs and wants but not just our kids but all the children. They believe in shaping the kids and helping them grow which I find as a plus.
