Y ON THE FLY- How you can help

YMCA program making a difference in Memphis

September 9, 2019

Y ON THE FLY is an amazing program that takes the most important elements of the YMCA into neighborhoods around the Mid-South. YMCA staff and volunteers take their Learning and Activity Stations like HEALTHY EATING, HEALTH & AQUATIC SAFETY, EDUCATION AND READING and FUN to areas (many of which are underserved) to focus on the youth of the Mid-South.  

During these stops, up to 7 times a week during the summer, the kids get a healthy snack, physical exercise and learn the importance of water safety. In the Education & Reading station they introduce kids to science, math skills, technology and, every child gets to pick a book to take home. There's even a station for new experiences and FUN like seeing a 3-D Printer in action and the self powered smoothie bike! 

Y ON THE FLY is making an impact on our youth where our communites need it the most.  You can help change the the future for our kids! Here's how you can help: 

Currently the program costs about $150,000 a year to run.  It's not just monetary donations they need, they also need volunteers. If you'd like to volunteer, or if you think your business may have something to offer to enhance the program, contact the YMCA Y ON THE FLY program YMCAMemphis.org/YOnTheFly
