Everyone Belongs at the Y. You Should Too.
There’s something for everyone here at the Y! We’d like to know about your experiences here and how it’s impacted you or your family’s life and well-being. We’ve created this submission form for your convenience to share the initial details of your story. Once we receive it, we may contact you for further information or a video interview to learn more. Unfortunately, we can’t share everyone’s story…there are so many!
If your story is used in any of our communications such as our website, publications or advertising, we’d like to recognize you with an I BELONG T-SHIRT so everyone knows you’re part of the Y family and they should be too!
Here are some story guideline suggestions:
- Inspirational stories of triumph that demonstrate how the Y provided a program, facility, resources or staff support to help you and your family. The story should also demonstrate the Y’s mission in some way through either Youth Development, Healthy Living or Social Responsibility.
- It demonstrates the role that the Y played in your or your family’s success in overcoming specific circumstances, challenges and issues, a disability, met a need, or how you adopted a healthy lifestyle. It should be compelling and unique. There are numerous stories throughout the Y, but we’re looking for the ones that dramatically stand out and have a positive “wow” factor.
- The subject of the story must be willing to share it with the community-at-large and be able to articulately tell it and present a positive image. If used, the story will likely be captured on video and be edited for various communications channels to encourage others to belong to the Y.
