What will we be doing? And Why Should I Attend?
As leaders of YMCAs, we are often dealt with obstacles in trying to deliver the community empowering programs and services to the 1.5 million New Yorkers that rely on them.

The SYBT Dinner Meeting is an opportunity for all of us to come together to have constructive and collaborative discussions on the ways that, we as the Y, can strengthen our impact on New York State.

Through dynamic discussion, we will identify the ways that we can collectively effect the impact we have on the families and children in our communities. Much like a puzzle pieces – the sum of us is much greater than the parts.



* The $500 travel stipend will only be available to Ys whose CEOs, along with their CVO or Key Volunteer attend for the entirety of the event (3:00 – 8:30 PM).
