Director Christine Slattery

My name is Christine Slattery, and I am the Director of the YMCA program at Concordia Elementary. I am a graduate of California State University, San Bernardino with my Bachelor’s in Liberal Studies and a concentration of Mathematics. Before the YMCA, I was a program supervisor for another after school program, THINK Together. I was a manager there for 10 years. Needless to say, my passion is with children and extended learning time. I am excited to see our children learn and grow to be the best versions of themselves. Here at the YMCA, we strive for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. We will be working hard to build long lasting relationships, positive character and expand on our learning experiences.

Director Rick Boyer

My name is Rick Boyer and I am the director at Del Obispo YMCA. I have worked for the YMCA of Orange County for 12 Years. I started volunteering for the YMCA as a counselor with their Resident Camp and eventually took the position of assistant teacher at one of the YCMA locations. I worked at various schools, increasing my position over the years. I took a few years off and moved to New York City, which was a rewarding and eye opening experience. I came back to California to start a family and return to my roots. I have grown up through the Y and am grateful for the opportunity to assist with the development of others.

Director Araceli Godoy

Hello! My name is Araceli Godoy and I have worked for the YMCA for three years – enjoying every single day of it! I have worked with middle school and high school students for over ten years and believe working with teenagers keeps me young. Middle schoolers have a special place in my heart because I had a hard time at that age and had great teachers that were there for me. I hope to help students during this awkward and important time in their life.

My philosophy is “If life give you lemons, plant the seeds and watch the fruit it produces.”

Hi, my name is Laurie and I started at the YMCA in February 2017. I previously worked at Pretend City Children’s Museum for four years in a myriad of positions. While at Pretend City, I learned many of the ins and outs of running a non-profit and greatly enjoyed being able to use that knowledge to benefit my branch while working directly with kids. I am passionate about helping children receive a high-quality education regardless of race, class, gender, ability, or socioeconomic status (SES).

Director Matthew Yeakel

Hello, my name is Matthew Yeakel and I am excited to be the director of the Marblehead YMCA. I have taken multiple child development classes at Saddleback College to pursue my degree in Child Development. I have been working in after school care for about 16 years. I spent 10 years with The Learning Connection at Saddleback Valley School District where I started out as a Child Care Teacher and worked my way up to an Assistant Director. After working at the school district, I got a job at the YMCA, working as a teacher at Vista Del Mar for 3 years. I was offered a great opportunity to be a lead teacher/Assistant Director at TLC Ministries After School Care and Camps in San Clemente for a few years. Since day one of working with children in after school care, I knew that I found the career I’ve been looking for. To be able to have the chance to work with children and be a mentor is truly rewarding to me. Every day that I come into work I looking forward to seeing what the day brings.

Hi, my name is Debra Flores and I’ve been with the YMCA for over 10 years. I want all my students to know how amazing they are, how important they are and that they can do and become anything they want. When I was younger I had a hard time with school. I had a teacher who, without her help, I would have never graduated high school, nor would I have attended college. It is my hope that maybe I can help students to believe in themselves and help them succeed in their goals.
