2016-2017 Character Builders Program


Character Builders now has member/participant pricing

At the Y, we are driven to serve the families in our community. Over the next 10 years, the YMCA will strengthen this focus through more programs, resources and membership benefits to positively impact family members. The YMCA is committed to increase family activities, expand our facilities and provide high quality affordable programming to support families. By offering member pricing for our Character Builder families we offer easy access to membership benefits and high-quality, affordable child care.
