Feel good. Year in Review 2008

New Canaan YMCA Enriching all people in spirit, mind, and body. . .


Feel good.

Our goal, as always, is to thrive, not simply survive: We remain committed to promoting and building the 40 Developmental Assets among our community’s young people through active collaboration with the Town of New Canaan, the public schools, and other agencies serving young people. The YMCA continues to invest in its facility. We recently opened our new Mind-Body Center, completed construction on our new school-age playground as well as the HVAC project in the Valles Pool, and installed ultraviolet water filtration systems in both pools in order to reduce the amount of chlorine used.

E

nriching all people in spirit, mind and body . . . is the New Canaan YMCA’s mission

on behalf of the community we are proud to serve. While the past year has tested many individuals and organizations, we are pleased to report that the Y has again successfully delivered on its mission of community service. In spite of the uncertain economic conditions, the New Canaan YMCA has retained a steady fiscal position. With reports of the closure of local businesses—and two YMCAs in Connecticut—our board and staff have worked diligently to contain costs without sacrificing the quality of our members’ experience.

The YMCA and Outback Teen Center have entered into a partnership and management agreement to better serve the town’s teens through a sharing of operational strengths. We are grateful that philanthropic support of the Y remains strong. The YMCA’s 12th annual golf outing at Sleepy Hollow Country Club, chaired by Chris Pohle and Rick Selvala, raised nearly $60,000 to benefit special needs programming. The 2008 All Kids Are Our Kids annual support campaign, under the leadership of Brian Hetherington and Susan Lovejoy, raised more than $450,000.


The Y is entering its third year of partnership with Facing the Future, a nonprofit organization serving the Kenyan slum of Kibera, and we are planning a return service learning trip. Under the leadership of our Board Finance Committee, we refinanced the loan on our 2003 renovation to obtain more favorable rates. In 2008, the YMCA awarded approximately $238,000 in financial assistance for membership and programs, up 23% from 2007. Now, more than ever, the YMCA is dedicated to serving the community, and our volunteers and staff continue to explore new ways to deliver on our mission. Yours in service,

PETER SKAPERDAS Board President

CRAIG PANZANO Executive Director

Congratulations to Lee Ana Greywacz,

2008 winner of the YMCA’s All Kids Are Our Kids college scholarship. Supported by the Y’s annual support campaign, the scholarship was established in 2007 to enable a high school senior to pursue higher education. A one-time award of $5,000 is granted each year based on academic potential, as well as volunteer and work experience. “Lee Ana is a real Y kid,” explains Executive Director Craig Panzano. “She’s been a program participant, volunteer, and staff member and truly embodies the spirit of the scholarship.” A graduate of New Canaan High School, where she was captain of the Gymnastics team, Lee Ana attends Norwalk Community College and works in the childcare and camp programs at the Y.

Did you know: Summers to Remember: 575 children made friends and had fun at YMCA camp last year.

In 2008, nearly 50 members of our community in financial need received $24,000 in YMCA program assistance.


Research conducted by the American Camp Association shows that campers and counselors derive important social and emotional benefits from participation in a summer camp setting.

The YMCA’s philosophy of teaching respect, teamwork, helping others, and responsibility are what makes their camp a very positive experience for the children who attend.” -ANNA FAROOQUI Parent of YMCA camper

A Place for Everyone: We strive to serve all members of our community, and individuals with special needs are encouraged to participate in any program offering, with the assistance of a YMCA aide if needed. In addition, the New Canaan YMCA has a variety of specific special needs programs if that is better suited to a specific participant’s needs. Middle School Madness: Last year, 375 youth in grades 5-8 enjoyed safe, supervised Saturday nights at the Y. Events included DJ dance parties, March Madness basketball, working out, swimming, and games.

Did you know: In 2008, the Y awarded $80,000 in summer camp scholarships to 83 children.


Families feel good.

T

he New Canaan YMCA helps to build strong families through quality childcare and nursery school programs where children develop positive behavior, social skills, and self-esteem. Our NAEYC-accredited Child Development Center serves more than 120 working families with children from infancy through sixth grade.

Did you know: In 2008, the Y awarded $43,700 in childcare assistance to working families.

Thank you for helping Morgan and all her fellow “princesses” to have a memorable three years in the Y-Princesses program. It was with great reflection that I looked at them all playing on the grounds of our “estate” Saturday night at the final outing. There was no television. No computers. Nothing but the kids’ boundless imagination and energy. It is still possible to manufacture fun from nothing other than great weather and wide-open spaces. I know that Morgan will always have a warm place in her heart for great friends and caring dads, who, for awhile, were able to step away and remember what it was like to once again be young and wondrous.” -CHRIS WALLING, Puyallup tribe member (and one of 922 participants in the Y-Guide and Princess Program)


I believe that success is directly proportionate to one’s personal wellness. Taking care of your physical, mental, and emotional well-being is the start of achieving goals . . . and as the area’s representative Household CEO, I spend time at the New Canaan YMCA for optimal health and wellness. -DEVON FLEMING, author, on-air personality, community volunteer, mother, wife and YMCA Member for 13 years.

T

o support all individuals in their pursuit of wellbeing in spirit, mind, and body, the New Canaan YMCA has collaborated with YMCA of the USA in a bold initiative called Activate America. This initiative calls for a reinvention of the YMCA experience, both internally and externally, as we seek to engage “health seekers”—those children, teens, adults, and families whose successful pursuit of health requires supportive relationships and environments. The New Canaan YMCA strives to provide a welcoming, affirming atmosphere where all individuals can feel comfortable and receive the support they need to improve their overall wellness. We have been involved in the Capacity Building phase of this initiative and have dedicated resources toward staff training and other operational changes in order to transform itself to better serve our community, and to promote health and well-being.

Did you know: Wellness for All: Every member of the family can find support in their pursuit of health and well-being at the New Canaan YMCA.

The New Canaan Y’s 70+ weekly group fitness classes logged 800 weekly visits in 2008.

New Canaan YMCA 2008 Community Partners Working together for our community’s youth: the YMCA/Outback partnership

T

his past year, the New Canaan YMCA and Outback Teen Center came together with an innovative partnership and management agreement to better serve New Canaan’s teens. While the Outback has had many successes over the past eight years, the boards of both the Y and the Outback agreed that the time was right for a collaboration between the two organizations. Our shared vision is for the Outback to be a hub for youth activities, including a wider array of after-school programs for middle- and high-school students—as well as activities and special events to include field trips, community service programs, teen mentoring, homework help, or simply stress-free down time. Since January 2009, YMCA staff member Lacey Arndt has been in the role of Outback Director, overseeing programming and staffing. With a proven track record at the YMCA and an expertise in youth programming, Lacey is already bringing a new level of participation to Outback activities. Additionally, the Outback’s vibrant student governing board has broken attendance records with several successful middle- and high- school events. “I enjoy empowering the kids to provide direction

and leadership to the happenings at the Outback,” says Ms. Arndt. “It’s really their place to be, and their role in the process is helping to build Developmental Sharing Strengths: Town Council Assets in our Chairman Mark DeWaele, 2008 Outback community.” Board President Julie Amos, Y Executive Director Craig Panzano, Outback Director Says First Lacey Arndt, and First Selectman Jeb Selectman Jeb Walker announce the partnership and Walker, “This management agreement between the is a banner day YMCA and the Outback. for the Outback Teen Center and the families of New Canaan. I congratulate the YMCA for their efforts to make this agreement happen.” Town Council Chairman Mark DeWaele adds, “The YMCA is a fabulous community asset, and their work with the Outback will further enhance the vitality of the Teen Center.”

The Kibera Partnership

I

n 2007, the New Canaan YMCA embarked on an exciting partnership with Facing the Future, a child development center serving the Kenyan slum of Kibera. Kibera is Africa’s largest slum, with more than one million people living in an area the size of Central Park. The people of Kibera have none of the things that we take for granted on a daily basis, such as clean water, plumbing, trash removal, medical facilities, and food. There are not enough schools, childcare, and early childhood education programs available to meet the needs of all of the children in Kibera, where 70% of the population is under the age of 14. Founded by Simeon Ajigo, former head of the Kibera YMCA, Facing the Future provides early childhood education, primary education, a youth leadership program, and feeding to more than 100 young people. Many of these children receive their only daily meal at Facing the Future. In addition to sponsoring the feeding program, the New Canaan YMCA has helped provide classroom furnishings, school uniforms, other supplies, and hope to these young people.

Did you know: $200 will feed one child in Kibera for an entire year.
