Inspiring Hearts & Enriching Minds
Future Leaders Youth Academy
Opening September 2014
With so many demands on today’s families and the urgency of early brain development, kids need all the support they can get. For 160 years, the Y has provided a welcoming environment with caring staff where youth can feel comfortable to express themselves. As needs and trends change, so do we. We are proud to introduce the Future Leaders Youth Academy at YMCA Anthony Bowen, a new preschool enrichment model that will inspire your child’s love for learning, social and emotional development, character and creativity.
The Academy is a place where kids ages 2.5 to 5 years will learn early on how they can make a sincere contribution to the world around them. At the YMCA, we provide the best chance for our youth to succeed in school and life.
The Academy is designed to help your child grow through STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Mathematics) and healthy living activities, a safe and nurturing environment, instilling socially-conscious values, and reinforcing positive social skills. Every activity and interaction instills the Y’s core belief that all children have great potential, and deserve the opportunity to discover it. Our inspiring team is committed to not only teach these values and beliefs, but serve as role models.
Let us help you make sure your child’s is strong and bright! Click here for for our brochure. Space is limited, so call 1-800-473-9622 to request a tour, get more info or register.
The Legacy Continues...
We've been innovating for 160 years and we're just getting started. This redeveloped YMCA unites the right minds and resources for community interaction, education, healthy living, and our life-changing programs. The unique design celebrates the legacy of YMCA Anthony Bowen as historically the first African American Y, founded in 1853, along with its ability to adapt and serve our community’s evolving needs. It also pays tribute to its famed visitors (such as Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, Poet Langston Hughes and Dr. Charles Drew) and founder Anthony Bowen, a slave who purchased his freedom in 1830 and went on to become a prominent religious and community leader.
