For Social Development

Welcome to the

Valley Points
Family YMCA

In one way or another, we're all connected to the Y. Whether it's where you discovered a talent that became a lifelong passion, were encouraged by a mentor, or where you turn for support with a healthy lifestyle.

At the Valley Points Family YMCA, we believe our programming lays the groundwork for healthy futures, builds a sense of community, and conveys the values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. Yes, children learn to swim, kids have somewhere to go after school and we teach about healthy lifestyles, but the Y is far more than that. The Y is a place where kids find direction, families come together and people rally to make a difference.

With a commitment to nurturing youth development, promoting healthy living, and fostering a sense of social responsibility, the Y ensures that people of all ages and from all walks of life have access to the essentials needed to be more healthy, confident, connected and secure.

 

WHAT'S HAPPENING AT THE Y


Football isn't the only thing kicking off these days...how about our Y's Dance Program! Classes for kids ages 3-18 (and adults as well) kick-off on September 8th and we want you to join us. Whether it's ballet, tap, combo or lyrical, it's happening at the West Vandergrift Early Learning Center with a variety of options to meet your needs. And when the season's done, all of your hard work will pay off through your participation in our annual dance recital. Sign up today by stopping in at either Branch location, or calling us at 724.845.1968 or 724.335.9191. Click here to see the Dance Schedule!

If you like to read and are a member of the Y, this is the club for you! The book club members select the readings and meet on the third Tuesday of the month at 7:00pm for discussion at the Kiski Valley Branch. Book lists are selected approximately six months in advance. Join us at the next meeting—September 16; After the Funeral by Agatha Christie—to get in on the fun!

Start School Ready to Succeed!
Thanks to a grant from Y-USA, our Y is offering the Early Learning Readiness program for free for children ages 0-5—along with their caregivers—to learn together! ELR engages both children and caregivers to play and learn while developing the physical, verbal and social skills necessary for school. The program runs twice a week for two hours for 38 weeks, starting September 3rd. Click here for more information!
