our Wellness Director represents md ys

Alex Flores, Wellness Director at YMCA Potomac Overlook was recognized as a knowledge expert at The Links for Legislature luncheon held on March 18, 2014. Members of The Links, Inc. fostered a relationship with Alex as members of our Y, and invited him to speak. He was given a chance to present to their membership, local families and Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley.

“Speaking on behalf of our branch was an honor,” shared Alex. “It was exciting to not only speak to the crowd about the programs we offer in wellness, but shaking hands with the Governor is one memory I will never forget.”

Man 2 Man Mentoring
YMCA Potomac Overlook launched an onsite mentoring program in March 2014! Designed to give middle school boys a positive role model, students will be paired with high schoolers for sessions twice a week through the end of the school year. Mentor and mentee pairs will cover: 
  • Academic achievement
  • Life skills development
  • Health and nutrition
  • Recreation
The high school students will receive a monthly stipend and help mentees to:
  • Aspire to education excellence
  • Prepare for higher education and employment
  • Improve academic performance
  • Increase knowledge of general health practices
If you have a high school male student or middle school student who would benefit from this program, please contact our Associate Executive Director, Lucresha Murphy via email. Look forward to more information regarding an information session to be held later this month!


Caring for our Community
In 2013, we provided $60,976 in scholarships and subsidies to Fort Washington and our surrounding neighborhoods. Every dollar donated or spent at YMCA Potomac Overlook stays in your Y and community.

In order to give support to those who need us most, we rely on your generosity. Please consider making a contribution on your next visit to the branch. You can also click here to donate online. Make sure you designate YMCA Potomac Overlook for your funds to benefit our community! We provide receipts for your tax reporting purposes.

If you have time to give, and would like to serve as a volunteer, please contact our Membership Coordinator, Suzanne McCarthy via email to discuss ways you can get involved.
