Healthy Kids Day

With summer just around the corner, Healthy Kids Day is a great time for families to begin thinking early about what their kids need to stay physically and intellectually active this summer.

We will kick off with a dance off; followed by a 1 mile Fun Run at 9:15am. We will also have face painting, karate, a K9 police demo, bounce house, GaGa, and a family obstacle course that ends with a Polar Plunge. There will be also be fun stations to visit: Mad Messy Science, Amazing Race, Water Extravaganza and Hawaiian Hullaabaloo. And the Forsyth County Department of Health will visit us to go over dental health; plus our dietitian-Micki McKnight will go over healthy snacks with kids!

Upcoming Training for Volunteer ESL Tutors

Do you love to learn and help others learn? Do you have 3 hours a week to volunteer? Help an adult learn English as a second language!

We provide training, materials, and on-going support. We will match you with a learner whose schedule fits yours – and you can meet at one of our tutoring rooms (Robinhood Road Family YMCA, Fulton Family YMCA, Winston Lake Family YMCA, William G. White. Jr Family YMCA) or at a public library. Volunteers meet 3 hours each week with a learner. No Spanish necessary! We have learners from over 20 countries, including China, Korea, Burma, Vietnam, Mexico, Cuba, Colombia, Ecuador…some are just beginners and some have studied English for years and just need help with conversation and pronunciation.

We are currently recruiting and training volunteers in the Walkertown area – to help adults with basic English conversation skills to help them get a job and manage daily interactions like shopping, making appointments, and getting information they need. You can work with one student or assist an instructor in a group class.

Volunteers can meet individually with learners at the Walkertown or Kernersville public libraries or can assist with small group ESL classes we are scheduling 6 weeks starting in late April and May.
