Robinhood Road Family YMCA Community Garden

Calling All Green Thumbs!

In early 2014 a small group of YMCA members had ambitious plans to develop the private land adjacent to the Y parking lot into a community garden. Our Robinhood Road Family YMCA Community Garden provides the opportunity to grow and harvest fresh vegetables to enjoy as part of a healthy lifestyle, as well as sharing with those in need.

Harvested vegetables from the community garden and produce donations received here will benefit H.O.P.E. of Winston Salem, a volunteer-driven organization focusing on food insecurity and children’s health. Your produce donations are picked up here by H.O.P.E. each week and provide nutritious lunches to children and fresh produce to parents who are living in designated food deserts in Winston Salem.

In addition to growing vegetables for donation, the Robinhood YMCA Community Garden also has a limited number of raised beds that are rented each season to our members. Once rented, these 4×4 beds allow the member to grow vegetables or flowers for their own use and enjoyment. These rental beds go quickly, so if you are interested in joining our gardening community or if you would like to find out about other volunteer opportunities in the garden or renting a bed, just visit our Front Desk for more information.

Adventure Guides

The YMCA has a long history of bringing parents and children together for life enriching experiences. This history has left a legacy of strengthened relationships and close bonds in many families and communities around the country. The YMCA of Northwest North Carolina has been a part of the Y-Indian Guide/Adventure Guides program for more than 30 years. Adventure Guides currently serves 20 tribes with over 400 participants in Forsyth, Stokes, Davie, Yadkin, and Wilkes Counties. Collectively, these tribes form the Adventure Guides Saura Nation.

The Adventure Guides Program aims to strengthen the bond between fathers and their children through activities that allow them to spend quality time together. Based on strong traditions of the Native American Culture including dignity, patience, endurance, spirituality, concern for the Earth and family values, these programs are tools that will help build memories that will last a lifetime.

play-kids-flashlightThrough Adventure Guides, the YMCA provides the following benefits to father and child:

YMCA Literacy Volunteer Reading Tutors

Could you spend 3 hours each week helping an ADULT improve reading skills? 

Training sessions: coming soon

We will provide you with 10 hours of training, materials, and on-going support you as you meet twice each week with a learner. We assess all learners and match you with someone whose schedule and logistical preferences match yours. After you are matched you can meet at a YMCA, public library, or any other public location.

Our learners vary from 2nd grade – 9th grade reading levels. Many are working on specific goals like filling out job applications, working for a promotion at work, or learning to help children or grandchildren with homework. Most of our learners are in their 40s and 50s.

Please contact Nury Anton at n.anton@ymcanwnc.org for Adult ESL tutoring or Gitte Sato for Adult Reading Tutoring at g.sato@ymcanwnc.org or fill out our tutor interest form.
