Dear Friends, We are pleased to present the 120th Annual Report of the Peninsula Metropolitan Young Men’s Christian Association. We celebrate as we reflect upon another year of achievements made possible through the collective support of volunteers, members, Mission Partners, and staff. We have come far from our beginnings on 32nd Street, and the reach of our Y today is inspiring; 15 individual communities, 50,000 members, 4,000 donors, 1100 employees, and 3,094 volunteers served 54,029 hours. Our buildings are filled with thousands of adults, families, and children, each with their unique story. These stories are true testaments to the important role our YMCA plays in the daily life of so many. We hear stories about building friendships, chasing dreams, inspiring hope, achieving goals, and building values. The common thread in all of them is our Y. The Y’s impact is not limited to our buildings. We reach beyond our walls and meet our community members where they live. Our Y’s presence can be found in schools, churches, community centers, parks, libraries, senior centers, and in partnership with local hospitals. We believe in community affiliation and work tirelessly to collaborate with other nonprofits, municipalities, and businesses because we know that together we are stronger and can do so much more. We strengthen our communities with initiatives designed to serve the ever-changing needs of individuals and families. Our summer learning-loss prevention program gives hundreds of children the tools they need to stay on track academically through the summer months. LIVESTRONG at the YMCA offers a caring, supportive exercise program filled with hope and love for cancer survivors. Participants take the friendships and encouragement they experience in the 12-week program and share the power of the program with others. They gain the strength to live beyond their diagnoses. What a beautiful legacy; our Y has generated a cycle of generosity and appreciation that affects both those who give and those who receive. Our impact extends far beyond our walls and as a result becomes part of who we are. Each board member, staff member, volunteer, donor, and partner is an extension of our mission in all that we do every day.

TEEN VOLUNTEER LEADERS OF THE YEAR 2016 Hampton Family YMCA. Kiva Harrell is a confident leader. If you ask her, Kiva will tell you she has considered the YMCA her second home for the majority of her childhood. Her mother introduced her to the Y when they moved to Hampton; she searched for a program that provided a place that was safe, fun and encouraging. As a member of the Leaders’ Club, she served as the Secretary and then President. She attended Blue Ridge Leaders’ School, where she learned to be confident, responsible, caring, respectful, helpful, honest, a leader, and how to work with people of all ages as well as being healthy.

I cannot say enough positive things about the Y’s water safety program, Safety Around Water, 2nd Grade Learn to Swim. This was perfect for my grandson. When the information came home about the program, we were a little unsure. My daughter, Camden’s mom, and I never learned to swim; we are fearful of water. After learning about drowning being the second leading cause of accidental death for children under the age of 14; we knew this was a program we needed to participate in; we live in an area that is surrounded by water. As I waited at Camden’s first lesson, a lady approached me and asked if this was his first lesson. I told her it was and about this program the Y offers to the community. She shared with me that she lost her nephew to drowning 40 years prior. The hurt is still carried by this family. Thanks to the Y, there will be hopefully so much less of this kind of tragedy. How wonderful that the Y is so community-focused you would have this wonderful program for those of us who cannot afford swim lessons. I thank you from the bottom of my heart and soul. Your gift of teaching my grandson skills to be safe around water will be with him the rest of his life. His instructor, Mr. Max, was so kind and considerate helping Camden overcome his fear of water. Thank you to your staff and for your dedication to the community. ~Grandma Joan

THE Y. FOR WATER SAFETY. FOR A BETTER US. tm

Luter Family YMCA. Benjamin Lockwood displays exceptional communication, team-building and leadership skills. Benjamin is currently serving his third year as Assistant Swim Coach for the Luter Swim Team. He is self-disciplined and responsible while taking an active role supporting the opportunities and challenges of all the swimmers within the team. This past summer, as Benjamin was working toward earning his Eagle Scout Rank, he built a sail structure that will be utilized for YMCA youth programs for years to come. Northumberland Family YMCA. Emily Coultrip makes a difference. Over the past year, Emily has been at the Y nearly every day. One afternoon she offered to help with some administrative tasks. She began to take them on frequently, and did so with a sense of pride. Emily’s natural character and desire to help others makes her more than a helping hand at the welcome desk, she’s a valued volunteer and a shining example of how one person can make a big difference in the lives of others, simply by offering to help. R. F. Wilkinson Family YMCA. Jem Gonzalez-de Jesus connects with others. Jem has a personality that allows her to connect, engage and communicate with anyone. She is an extremely mature young adult who continues to give a lot of time and effort into everything she does. She’s been Teen Leaders’ Club President for two years, and this year she is assisting our new Junior Leaders’ Club. Jem also attends regular YMCA board meetings and helps with fundraising. Jem is currently a freshman at TNCC and recently received an internship at NASA. Jem is going to do great things in her life, and we are excited to see how far she goes. Richmond County Family YMCA. Hannah Lewis improves lives. Hannah spent her summer improving the lives of other young people in our Day Camp and Preschool camp programs. Each day Hannah arrived with enthusiasm, a smile, and a willingness to do whatever was needed to create a great camp experience. Hannah was fabulous at greeting campers and their parents in the morning and making sure they left with a smile. She took initiative to lead camp games and activities, while her contagious positive attitude created a fun summer for the kids and all of the staff. Newport News Family YMCA. Indya Jones saves lives. Indya is a valued member of our aquatics volunteer team. Her friendly and approachable demeanor quickly builds trust with young swimmers so they gain confidence to improve their swimming skills. Indya also assists our Swim Team coach. The Swim Team members relate well to Indya’s youth and positive attitude. The coaches and aquatics staff all value Indya in and out of the water as she supports them and keeps the children happy, progressing, and safe in the pool.

Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn. —Benjamin Franklin Northern Neck Family YMCA. Alyson Vanlandingham has a passion to help others. Alyson’s first volunteer experience was working Bright Beginnings. As a passionate and caring individual, she always puts the needs of others first. Alyson helped with many fundraising events, works with YMCA School-Age children every week, and plans to continue her education in Social Work. During Alyson’s time at the YMCA, she has become an excellent role model for all ages and truly understands and displays all of our character values through her work. Alyson stands out as an impressive youth leader. The First Tee of the Virginia Peninsula YMCA. Jack DeVore delivers. When 14-year-old Jack DeVore volunteered to coach the PLAYer level class at Two Rivers Country Club, we added a mature and dependable young man who quickly understood how to deliver our Golf and Life Skills Classes and contributed to the students’ enjoyment. The First Tee of the Virginia Peninsula YMCA is proud to have him as a part of the coaching team! Victory Family YMCA. Caitlin Kiss steps up. Through the years, we have watched Caitlin grow from a camper, to a volunteer, and now a leader. Caitlin spent her summer in our C.I.L.T. program, where she exceeded expectations. As the newly elected Leaders’ Club Treasurer, Caitlin devotes a large portion of time to helping run the club. As a longtime swim team member, Caitlin now volunteers teaching swim lessons, junior lifeguarding, assisting coaches with swim team, and setting up for meets. We cannot wait to see how she continues to develop throughout life and here at the Y! Westmoreland Family YMCA. Corey Mumford has a great Y attitude. As a summer camp teen counselor, Corey was the first to arrive and always swept the gym without having to be asked. He helped the children to their classes and read to them every day, you could count on him, and he never had to be asked twice to do anything. During fall soccer, Corey assisted with the 3- to 5-year-olds, showing them different drills and encouraging them to work hard and not give up. Corey also refereed for the 6- to 8-year-olds. He took the time to explain to each child why the call was made. You know everyone will be happy and excited as long as Corey is around! YMCA / APYC Camp Kekoka. Joey Hoffman is a huge asset. Joey has done everything we have ever asked him to try—well. He has been photographer and videographer of the Polar Bear Plunge, helped fathers and sons build their rockets at our Father/Son Rocket Retreat weekend, taught various groups how to fish and crab, worked with Tidewater Oyster Gardener’s Association to help build their oyster reef at camp, and helped plan games to be played during our summer sessions. Joey is always eager to help out and is looking forward to eventually being a Camp Kekoka counselor one day.

IMPACTING LIVES NOW AND IN THE FUTURE I joined the Diabetes Prevention Program in May of 2016. My experience has been life-changing, and I heartily support the program. The program promotes a lifestyle change of nutrition and physical activity which reduces the risk of diabetes. For several years, my primary care provider urged me to lose weight and exercise more because I was pre-diabetic. I joined a gym with good intentions; unfortunately, my efforts failed repeatedly. Last March, my doctor referred me to the YMCA Diabetes Prevention Program. I made the one-year commitment and have learned nutrition, the importance of consistent physical activity, and identified roadblocks that kept me from reaching my goals. The facilitator and classmates offer additional support as we take this journey to a healthier lifestyle together. Now, five months into the program, I remain motivated and have exceeded my goal of 7% weight loss. I exercise at the YMCA at least three times a week and now understand how a balanced and healthy lifestyle protects me from diabetes. I am looking forward to my next appointment with my doctor instead of the usual dread. I am confident that my lab results will show improvement. More importantly, I now feel healthy and optimistic that my lifestyle changes will be long-term.

2016 BRANCH LEADERS CHAIRMEN OF THE BOARD

T.N. Hunnicutt III, now 84 years old, recalls the old Newport News YMCA, erected on 32nd Street in 1901: “You didn’t lift weights; there was no weight-lifting equipment. If you were above 6 feet tall, you didn’t play basketball in the basement gym either, the ceiling was too low. There was no pool. The Y wasn’t much of a fitness center; instead, it was the hangout for guys and gals. It was a favorite lunch spot for Newport News High School students.” In 1965, at the age of 33, Tommy became a member of the Newport News YMCA Board of Directors. He followed in the footsteps of his father, Dr. T.N. Hunnicutt Jr., who was President of the Newport News YMCA from 1948-1949. Tommy was elected to his first term as President in 1970, the year the new YMCA broke ground on Warwick Boulevard. The new Newport News YMCA opened its doors there on June 3, 1971. After 120 years, the Peninsula Metropolitan YMCA, formerly the YMCA of Newport News Virginia, has grown to 18 locations serving over 50,000 members. Our service area stretches over 120 miles, and our programs and member services register nearly 1,000,000 kids and families each year. We are proud of our YMCA and indebted to volunteers and donors like the Hunnicutt family, who have given so much of their lives that our YMCA may serve so many. For over 70 years of service to our community by the Hunnicutt family, this year’s Social Responsibility Award goes to T.N. Hunnicutt III.
