2017 Annual Report

YMCA of Northwest North Carolina

Community Benefit


At the Y, we make a difference by focusing on three key areas: Youth Development, Healthy Living and Social Responsibility. We work to strengthen our communities by investing in our kids, our health and our neighbors. In 2017, through Annual Giving Campaign support and grants, our Y provided $4.8M in charitable assistance, scholarships, subsidized and free programs to members and program participants.

Volunteers are the heart of our Y. During 2017, 3,096 volunteers provided 27,763 hours of service throughout our Association as board members, storytellers, coaches and program volunteers.

Dear Friends,

This was a year of significant transition for our Association. We welcomed a new leader, President and Chief Executive Officer Stan Law. The transition has provided an opportunity to expand on an excellent foundation with renewed energy and perspectives.

We focused this year on evaluating our YMCA with fresh eyes in order to ensure that the work we do is meeting the needs of the communities we serve. Through meetings with community leaders, our new leadership was able to begin building relationships that will lead to future opportunities to serve in new and different ways. In particular, we began an assessment of how well the Y is serving East Winston. While the Winston Lake Family YMCA has faced challenges, the question is not how to fix it, but rather how do we best serve the East Winston community for years to come.

The commitment to serve diverse communities is central to the work of the Y. Our Association received a grant from the Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust to fund a new Y program called Unidos. Named for the Spanish word for United, Unidos will address three issues: the achievement gap, social and emotional learning, and family engagement in education and will target Hispanic students at Title 1 middle schools in the Winston-Salem, Forsyth County School System.

2017 also had challenges outside of our control, which brought unexpected opportunities. The tornado that hit YMCA Camp Hanes just a few short weeks before summer camp was scheduled to begin caused significant damage. But the community response was overwhelming – from volunteers cleaning up camp to generous capital donations to help rebuild – Camp will be even more beautiful and serve even more children than ever before.

We also continue to invest in our facilities. The Statesville Family YMCA completed the newly-renovated Youth Development wing of the building. Many YMCAs received new state-of-the-art exercise equipment. We launched new chronic disease prevention programs to continue our work of helping people address health and wellness challenges. Y membership is now nationwide, so members can visit any participating YMCA across the country.

And finally, we developed an implementation plan for the Strategic Plan, “Moving Our Mission Forward.” The goal of the plan is to enhance our impact on those we serve through intentionality in programming, brand positioning, and advocacy efforts so that the Y is better understood as a vital community resource when it comes to addressing issues.

The issues facing our communities are complex. It will require partnerships, collaboration, and additional resources to ensure that we have the greatest impact in strengthening the community through youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility.

We are grateful for the support of our donors, volunteers, members, and staff who make the work of the Y possible.

Thank you for your continued support.

In Spirit, Mind, and Body,

Chief Volunteer Officer
President and Chief Executive Officer

Safety Around Water

For Youth Development

The statistics are shocking:

  • - Children ages 1 to 4 have the highest drowning rates.
  • - For kids under age 12, drowning is the second leading cause of accidental death.
  • - Two children die every day because of drowning.

Drowning can happen nearly anywhere with standing water. Every child deserves to know how to be safe around water. As America’s swim instructor, and one of the most accessible community resources to prevent drowning, YMCAs across the country have committed to helping children learn the invaluable skill of swimming and water safety through a variety of programs.

Safety Around Water is a grant-funded program that helps children learn how to perform a sequenced set of skills over eight lessons of 40 minutes each. During that time the risk of drowning is reduced and children are given confidence in and around water. A typical session includes exercises to help kids adjust to being in water; instruction in “Jump, Push, Turn, Grab” and “Swim, Float, Swim,” two skill sets kids can use if they unexpectedly find themselves in the water; and specific safety topics, like what to do if you see someone in the water who needs help. Participants also have fun in the process! In 2017, 1,608 children were served through Safety Around Water at Jerry Long, William G. White, Jr., Kernersville, Davie, Stokes, and Statesville Family YMCAs. Additionally, Wilkes Family YMCA provides 400 pre-K students with swimming lessons through United Way Funding.

Through a longstanding partnership with Davie County Schools, every second grader visits the Davie Family YMCA for the Safety Around Water program. Ethan was one of those students who first learned to swim at the Y. He started off in the beginner class but was eager to swim and made it his goal to wear a green band and be able to swim anywhere in the pool by himself. A green band is the designation given to a child who passed the YMCA Swimmer Classification Test. In four days, Ethan learned rhythmic breathing, front stroke, backstroke, and how to be safe around water. Ethan is now confident around water and increased his knowledge of boating safety. 

He left the Second-Grade Safety Around Water program with his green band and is now competing for the YMCA TYDE swim team. After learning all four competitive strokes (breaststroke, backstroke, freestyle, butterfly), Ethan is helping new swimmers who join TYDE. Ethan and his family come to the Davie Family YMCA to swim for fun and Ethan’s little brother is learning to swim. 

Swim lessons are the next step in helping children not only stay safe, but also develop a lifelong love of the water. Across the Association, 3,370 individuals were served through swim lessons in 2017.

Adaptive Fitness for All

For Healthy Living

Kirk Lippard and his twin brother were born the night Hurricane Hugo came through Winston-Salem, 28 years ago. From his very first moments, Kirk showed how strong he was inside and out. Born at just 26 weeks with cerebral palsy and weighing only 2 pounds, 1 ounce, doctors didn’t think he could survive. Because of his prematurity, he developed cerebral palsy. As a toddler, he had metal braces on his legs and used a walker. After a serious spinal surgery and lots of physical therapy, he began walking on his own.

In high school, his Occupational Course of Study class led him to interviewing at the Fulton Family YMCA, where he was hired as a greeter. Kirk was no stranger to the Y, having come for years with his four brothers, mom Katie, and dad Jimmy. Jimmy Lippard was a longtime board member at the Y, and an avid swimmer, swimming 1.5 miles every morning.

Working at the Y, Kirk found a place to belong. He says, “The Y is such a social atmosphere.” He liked meeting new people. His mom saw a change in him as well. “He’s become more outgoing since working at the Y. He really enjoys this job. He’d probably live here if he could,” says Katie.

When the Y first launched BodyPump classes, another Y staff member encouraged Kirk to try it. With modifications, he was able to participate. “I didn’t know what to expect. I liked that you could lift weights and meet new people,” he says. When CrossFit Hanes Mill launched soon after, he was ready for his next challenge.

“My body is built differently. I’m not able to get around like other people,” Kirk says. “But I’m able to get around and that’s what counts.”

At CrossFit, Kirk found a community and a workout he loved. His favorite exercises are pullups, pushups, and rowing. By staying physically active, he’s able to increase his strength, flexibility, and doesn’t need traditional physical therapy. His brothers have come with him to classes when they’re in town and they’re very proud of what their brother has accomplished. But Kirk says, “I think I’m getting stronger than them.”

That competitive spirit lead Kirk to participate in his first ever CrossFit competition last year. His partner was another participant, age 68. Together, they completed the three-hour physically grueling accomplishment. Kirk is planning to be in more competitions in the future.

“I was the most proud of myself when I first started CrossFit,” says Kirk. “I didn’t know what to expect, but I did it and I’m proud of myself for that. You never know what to expect unless you try. And it’s definitely worth a try.”

Hope for a better life

YMCA Literacy has begun serving an increased number of refugee families, in partnership with World Relief and other community organizations.

While teaching newcomers English as a Second Language, the Literacy team uncovered a need within the families. For many of the women in the group, their primarily role was much-needed childcare, making it difficult for them to contribute to the family’s income. By understanding the problem and restrictions the women face, Y staff were able to develop a solution that helps the women earn income, while providing for their families.

The solution was RISE, which stands for Refugee and Immigrant Society of Entrepreneurs. The unique program helps YMCA Adult Literacy students support each other in creating small businesses. The Y provides computers, donated supplies, and craft classes, as well as connects RISE members with opportunities to sell their items. All money from sales go directly to the makers.

This unique program has been supported by many community organizations. Knollwood Baptist Church and Muddy Creek Café have hosted several successful craft fairs. Southern Home & Kitchen, a store in Thruway Shopping Center in Winston-Salem, hosted a “Cooking for a Cause” series featuring refugee chefs.

The Y is instrumental in supporting the women and their families in becoming self-sufficient as they embrace all the opportunities their new homeland has to offer.

With community collaboration at the heart of the work of the Y, the Adult Literacy Program also partnered with the City of Winston-Salem and Habitat for Humanity to help high-school drop-outs earn their GED and a nationally recognized construction certification in a 6-month program. Working with Y volunteer tutors, 5 students earned their high school equivalency and are currently completing internships.

Linda Wood: A Natural Leader

2017 Red Triangle Society Inductee

Growing up, Linda Wood played basketball at the Y. But it wasn’t until her daughters attended YMCA Camp Hanes that she became a Y volunteer. By checking one simple box on a form when she picked her daughter up from Camp, she set into motion more than two decades of volunteer leadership for the YMCA of Northwest North Carolina.

She joined the YMCA Camp Hanes Board of Managers in 2000, the summer after her daughter first attended camp. In the years that followed she has served in many leadership roles for the Y. She was chair of the YMCA Camp Hanes Board and joined the YMCA of Northwest North Carolina Association Board, where she also became chair and Chief Volunteer Officer for the Association. She has led the Annual Giving Campaign, the Strategic Plan process, as well as capital campaigns and other committees like the Compensation Committee for the Association.

In each of those roles she brought a leadership derived from her corporate career but combined with her kindness, sense of humor, and love for the Y.

“Linda’s leadership set in motion the YMCA we know today,” said Stan Law, President and Chief Executive Officer of the YMCA of Northwest North Carolina. "Without her adept direction and never-failing commitment to excellence, we would not have the strategic plan and foundation that guides everything we do to impact lives in youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility.”

The Red Triangle Society was established in 2002 and induction into the Society is the highest honor a Y volunteer can receive. Recipients demonstrate long-term and significant commitment, enthusiasm and dedication to the YMCA mission. The YMCA of Northwest North Carolina is pleased to induct Linda Wood into the Red Triangle Society.
