Journey To Freedom
Making Positive Life Changes
Is there anything in your life that you would like to change? Most of us have tried to make changes in our lives and have failed. Change is not impossible. Like most things in life that are worthwhile, change requires practice, training, and a solid foundation.
Journey to Freedom can provide the support you need to change your life for the better. This healing community of 8-10 people also experiencing change can help you work through changes both large and small. Journey to Freedom can help you experience lasting change and a better life.
It combines small group classes with health and well-being services to give you the best of both worlds, focusing on the whole you – spirit, mind and body while you work your specific needs and goals. Past participants have been able to address challenges related to their relationships and family dynamics, careers, weight/food/body image issues, grief/loss, anxiety and so much more.
Sessions are currently underway. Look for new sessions at Fulton Family YMCA, William G. White, Jr. Family YMCA, Statesville Family YMCA, and Stokes Family YMCA coming in September!

Our goal is not only to raise awareness of this problem, but also to fund childhood obesity programs that we know work. The YMCA’s Healthy, Fit and Strong program (formerly P.A.C.E.S) helps families understand and make healthier lifestyle and eating choices. Healthy, Fit and Strong has reached over 3,000 kids in our community so far. Included in this program is nutritional education for parents of obese children. The YMCA also provides an after-school physical activity curriculum and fitness classes for the entire family.
All of the net funds raised by the Mistletoe Run will go toward fighting childhood obesity. We need your support, now more than ever.

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.
