Make Back to School Bright! Volunteer for YMCA Bright Beginnings
Each year in the days leading up to the first day of school, YMCA volunteers take children who would otherwise not be prepared back to school shopping. More than 120 underprivileged children from several area elementary schools will go back-school-shopping through the Jerry Long Family YMCA Bright Beginnings Program. The children are also provided with a new, donated backpack stuffed with essential school supplies.
Many of us remember picking out a brand new backpack, outfit and purchasing supplies to get ready for the first day of school each year. Parents struggling to make ends meet cannot provide that experience, but we can still help children start the school year ready for success and make back to school special. Each year, the Y works with the staff at local Elementary Schools to identify the students who are most in need.
This year’s Bright Beginnings is taking place Tuesday, August 12.
Community members can get involved in YMCA Bright Beginnings by donating and volunteering. Call 336 712 2000 and ask for Jordan DuBois for more info about how you can help!
We also need your help collecting the following supplies to fill our backpacks. Any items that you are able to provide would be greatly appreciated!
Box of 24 Crayons, Glue Sticks, Pack of #2 Pencils, Box of Tissues, Box of Washable Markers, Pencil Ouch (Zippered or Box), Composition or Spiral Note Book (Wide Ruled), Pocket folders – Solid Colored, Hand Sanitizer, 3×5 Index Cards, Box of Zip-lock Bags (quart or gallon), 1” – 3 Ring Binders, Colored Pens or Highlighters, 5 Subject Spiral Notebooks (Wide Rule with Tab Dividers)
Register Now For Summer Camp
The summer months are just around the corner. Summer is meant to be filled with learning enrichment, new experiences, and making new friendships and memories that can last a lifetime. At the Y, we focus on programs that allow children to explore and get involved in activities that help them grow both mentally and physically.
Options available for all ages and many schedules and interests. Click here for more information, session dates and times, or to register.
Looking for a traditional resident camp experience? We have all that and more at the 400-acre Memory Maker YMCA Camp Hanes.
No matter your age or ability, you can learn to swim at the Jerry Long YMCA. Our YMCA trained and certified instructors cover swimming skills, stroke technique, water safety and boating safety in a friendly and encouraging environment. With small instructor to student ratio, our swim lessons provide personal instruction while providing a fun atmosphere. Classes are offered mornings and afternoons. Participants should bring a towel and wear a swimsuit. Goggles are strongly recommended for preschool, youth and adult classes. If your child is not fully potty-trained, it is required that they wear a “swimmy” diaper.

YMCA Diabetes Prevention Program
CHANGE TODAY FOR A HEALTHIER FUTURE
An estimated one of every three U.S. adults has prediabetes, yet just 7% of those with prediabetes know they have it.
Are you or someone you know at risk? Take the quiz now to find out.
You can reduce your risk for type 2 diabetes and gain tools for healthy living. If you are at risk for type 2 diabetes, the YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program provides a supportive environment where you can work with others in a small group setting to learn how to adopt healthy habits to reduce your chances of developing the disease.
The program, which is led by a trained Lifestyle Coach in a classroom setting, is delivered over a 12-month period, beginning with 16 weekly sessions followed by monthly maintenance. You will learn strategies for eating healthier, increasing your physical activity and making other changes that will improve your overall health and well-being. National Institutes of Health research has proven that programs like the YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program can reduce the number of cases of type 2 diabetes by almost 60%.
