The Y. For a better us.

Nurture the potential of more children like Marleigh: 

Marleigh is a first-year preschool students with the YMCA Preschool Program in Weber County. Marleigh started with no knowledge of letters and numbers and her social skills were limited. After a couple of months at the Y, Marleigh got used to the new environment and routines. 

Thanks to the patience and hard work of her YMCA teaches and the consistency of the program, she now knows letters of the alphabet, can count well beyond 50, and can write her name and the names of her classmates. She is also developing wonderful relationships with her classmates, teachers, and family members. Her parents said that Marleigh's growth and knowledge is outstanding and that they enjoy seeing her learning about the world around her. 

Together, we take on the challenges that shape Utah’s future. From tackling the achievement gap to teaching healthy habits for a lifetime or giving people the chance to strengthen our community through volunteering, everything the Y does is in service of building a stronger Utah. Every day, our community faces new challenges that create a greater need for the work we do.
