Y Life Teaches Students about Philanthropy

The Junior League of Gaston County, in partnership with the Central Family YMCA, has put the Y Life Program back on running track. It’s been operating for eight years, but has lost funding. Now, Junior League stepped in to help it continue.

The Y Life program mostly comprises of middle-school students, but there are also some ninth- and 10th-graders, who act as mentors. The program works by providing positive role models for younger students. The Y Life 2013-14 theme is “What is Philanthropy?” and next year’s will be education.
