WHY WE’RE HERE FOR YOUTH DEVELOPMENT

Nurturing the potential of every child and teen

FOR HEALTHY LIVING

Improving our community’s health and well-being

FOR SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

We believe that all kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve. That’s why, through the YMCA, millions of youth today are cultivating the values, skills and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health and educational achievement.

In neighborhoods across the five boroughs, the YMCA is a leading voice on health and well-being. The Y brings families closer together, encourages good health and fosters connections through fitness, sports, fun and shared interests. As a result, nearly 400,000 youth, adults and families are receiving the support, guidance and resources needed to achieve greater health and well-being for their spirit, mind and body.

Giving back and providing support to our neighbors The YMCA has been listening and responding to New York City’s most critical social needs for 160 years. Whether developing skills or emotional well-being through education and training, welcoming and connecting diverse demographic populations through global services, or preventing chronic disease and building healthier communities through collaborations with policymakers, the Y fosters the care and respect all people need and deserve.

We’re Here for Good. It’s been the signature phrase of New York City’s YMCA since early 2008, and it describes the Y’s commitment to building the foundations of-and stengthening- our communities, through nurturing the potential of every child and teen, improving community health and well-being and providing opportunities to give back and support neighbors. We’re here for you and your family. We’re here for the community. We’re here for good.

The children in the Early Childhood program are divided into four classrooms -Infant/Toddler Classroom (6 months-18months), Twos Classroom, Threes Classroom and Pre-K. These groups provide children with a classroom experience that best meets their developmental needs. Philosophy and Curriculum Our program is committed to providing a safe, supportive living and learning environment for young children. It offers a nurturing, yet challenging program for children who are enrolled on a full-time basis, as well as an early group experience for children who attend part-time. Teachers create a warm and loving atmosphere while covering a developmentally-based, engaging curriculum, where children can play, discover and learn. The Early Childhood Program values each child’s unique personality and temperament. The development of independence, trust and initiative is fostered through a balanced program of free play and structure, quiet and active play, and group and individual time.  Learning centers in each room include science, dramatic play, block building, library, art, music and manipulative materials. The children go outdoors each day and enjoy strengthening their gross motor skills in our gym. In addition, there are special classes in swimming, science, gym, music, and art. Social development is at the core of our program. We want our children to feel they are liked, respected and an integral part of the life in the classroom. Vanderbilt Y’s Early Childhood Program functions as a close-knit community of teachers, children and families. Each child develops a strong sense of community and belonging. Facility The Vanderbilt Y’s program has 4 spacious, well-equipped classrooms, as well as: • Pediatric toilets (In the Twos, Threes and Pre-K rooms) • Swimming pool • Indoor and outdoor play space

(Ages 6 - 36 months) YMCA Aquatics is about water safety, skill development and fun for everyone. Our programs are about more than just techniques and skills; they are about building friendships, developing self-esteem and creating positive experiences that last a lifetime. Our primary objective is to get both the parent and child comfortable in the water. The child will become aware of the differences between moving through water and on dry land, while the parent will become aware of how to teach the child to be safer in and around the water. Classes are designed to allow the child to have fun while the parent guides him or her to learn aquatic skills. The child will be exposed to games that use basic movements in the water such as kicking, arm strokes, and breath control. Activities are based on the developmental abilities of the child. Please contact Jonathan Dickson at 212-912-2536 or jdickson@ymcanyc.org for more information. Member: Non-Member:

YMCA CORE TEEN PROGRAMS (AGES 13-19) Teens Take the City (TTC) Teens Take the City is a dynamic leadership development program that offers NYC teens the opportunity to roll up their sleeves and get involved in issues affecting them and their community. Teens engage in community mapping to figure out how to better their community, work in small groups to identify a law to address the issue, develop a policy proposal that is debated for other teens at City Hall, learn the history and function of NYC government, and meet and interview a NYC official. Once students have developed a policy proposal, they will implement their initiatives in their community through youth-lead service learning activities. Talk about social responsibility at its best! High School Students: Monday 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM Leaders Club This nationally recognized core YMCA teen program provides participants with opportunities for leadership training, personal growth, service to others and social development.
