Youth Institute is an innovative program that uses technology and service learning for promoting positive youth development, academic success and career readiness for high school students. The goals of the program are to increase academic, technology, social and life skills and to develop leadership and job training skills. Students participate in an intensive summer program. They then graduate from the summer program and attend the after school program during their school year where they have access to the latest technologies, academic assistance, emotional support, job internships, and community service opportunities. No technology skills are required to participate in Youth Institute.

Anaheim Family YMCA Annual Report 2014 City of Anaheim This past year, the Y made an extraordinary impact, serving nearly 20,000 participants. The dedication from our Board of Directors, 458 staff, 765 volunteers and numerous supporters is the reason why the Y continues to be a leading nonprofit in youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) prepares youth with analytical and problem-solving skills for success in life. At the Y, we believe that all kids have potential. However, statistics show that a large number of children reach kindergarten unprepared and that they continue to fall behind. The Y is helping to close this Achievement Gap. According to the 2012 Anaheim Youth Service Assesment, there is a great need in Anaheim for safe programming outside of school hours. At the Y,safety is our priority. Programs like day camp, resident camps and sports open an entire world for kids and teens to explore. Beyond our programs, the Y is also working together with the community to create policy and environmental changes that promote healthy lifestyles where people live, work, learn, shop and play. The generosity of others is at the core of our existence. At the Y, we bring our community together through collaborations, volunteerism and giving. This past year, hundreds of volunteers built a new playground, and thanks to our generous donors, we provided over $1 million in financial assistance to families who need it most in our community.
Our $15 million capital campaign will bring a new 26,500 sq.ft. full-service YMCA facility that will benefit youth, teens and adults. This new Anaheim Family YMCA will help transform people’s lives like never before. Beyond health and wellness, it will help expand the Y's vital efforts in early childhood development, teen leadership, afterschool outreach, family programs and so much more.

THOMAS HARKINS, Age 1 Took his first steps in our preschool. Thanks to your support, he and his sister are both scholarship recipients. “ Because of you, my son Ariel has been involved with the Y since he was in 1st grade. He started in the Anaheim Achieves after school program, followed by the summer camps, and now Youth and Government. The Y’s impact on my son’s life is priceless. Now as a high school kid, it has provided a second family, a place to go, a place to be himself and to call home. The loudest message I hear from him every time he returns from camp or a gathering is how the Y allows each kid to be themselves without judgment or fear; how so many kids have expressed that they feel comfortable. It’s a place that nurtures love, encouragement and support. As a single parent, I appreciate that the Y has been there to provide mentors, positive examples, a positive environment and a place he can call HOME. During a time in our kids’ life that can be tumultuous, the Y provides a safe haven, people they can talk to, and offers so many ways to be involved in a positive way, especially helping the kids of the community. The values of the four YMCA character pillars (Honesty, Caring, Respect, Responsibility) are in line with my beliefs and what I ’ve taught Ariel. It has helped him through different stages of his life and through the programs. I see that the Y provides nothin g but positive opportunities and environments for kids. I see the dedication of the staff and the leadership especially at camps. My son looks up to the counselors so much and always comes home with a sense of inspiration. The Y creates a sense of belonging by providing opportunities to meet kids you wouldn’t otherwise meet and they become FAMILY. ” Martha Rodarte, YMCA Parent YOU CREATED A SECOND HOME AND FAMILY YOU MAKE HOPES AND DREAMS POSSIBLE EVELIN GUTIERREZ , Age 17 Is majoring in Film at CSULB thanks to STEM curriculum in the Y’s teen leadership and 21st century skills program.
