The funds raised from the YMCA Center for Community Impact Breakfast directly benefit youth and teens in our community.






teens have participated in YMCA Youth and Government - a completely student-led, non-partisan, civic engagement program where hundreds of teens (grades 8-12) learn the basics of state government, practice public speaking, and learn parliamentary procedure.


teens have attended the Pacific Region Conference. The goal of PRC is to provide a safe, supportive environment for teens to explore diverse topics with their peers. Topics can range from identifying values, building communication skills, to relationships, and making choices.


teens attended the Youth Leadership Development conference in Canada. The program helps youth become the leaders of tomorrow. YLD combines leadership training, teamwork, self-government, and volunteer placement to help build confidence – and connections.


teens have participated in the Youth Leadership Development club since 2013 where participants have the opportunity to meet new friends and participate in small group activities and discussions, while learning new perspectives about themselves and the world around them.


young leaders have signed up in the Summer of Service program in partnership with the Sioux YMCA in South Dakota. Helping kids in this area to get a sense of culture and learning from other parts of the U.S.

How has the YMCA Brotherhood Program made a difference in your life?

"I’ve been able to cultivate a multitude of personal and professional relationships as a result of being a part of Brotherhood. Again, we are a product of who we surround ourselves with. The educated leaders within Brotherhood inspired me to pursue my Bachelor’s degree. That motivation was coupled with an opportunity to earn scholarship money to pay for, a rather expensive, college degree. I was selected for being an outstanding community leader, academic, and being a part of Brotherhood. It was titled the 'Late Night Scholarship.'"

The YMCA of Pierce and Kitsap Counties Center for Community Impact’s mentoring programs help shape the lives of the youth in our community, allowing them to discover their potential and explore their purpose as they grow to be passionate young adults.
