Jalen Loves the Y!

helping hands icon

“Jalen was extremely shy, sensitive, and in desperate need of socialization before joining the YMCA’s programs.

JalenThe After School program at the YMCA has had a major impact on his academics. Since being a part of the program, his reading level has gone up half a grade level. I know that might not seem like much, but it is a huge deal not only to me, but to him as well.

We have discovered his love for basketball and he has become quite skillful for a seven year old. My son has blossomed since being a part of the Y.”
