Mission Valley YMCA's International Connection
A PARTNERSHIP WITH SOUTH AFRICA YMCA
The YMCA of San Diego County is part of the South Africa Coalition, a group of YMCAs across the country led by the YMCA of the USA focused on supporting and learning from the South Africa YMCA. On May 30, Mission Valley Y Fitness Director Chad Prokop set off for South Africa for two weeks to provide assistance to YMCAs that are experiencing a need for health and wellness programming. Chad will offer his expertise as these Ys reach out to a growing middle class that is in need of affordable fitness options.
The YMCA of San Diego County has three international partnerships, one of them being the South Africa YMCA. To learn more about Chad's experience see Chad's Building Bridges blog posts from South Africa!
The YMCA of San Diego County supports strengthening the global community, locally and in other countries, ensuring access and inclusion and empowering youth and adults to be global citizens.
