Shape Tomorrow

When the final school bells ring and summer break begins, millions of kids are at risk – of lost learning, of bad role models, of harmful choices in recreation. They are stormed by the expectations of their peers and parents while having to grasp crises intensified by the media. Keeping kids safe and engaged during the summer takes a village now more than ever.

In response, we’ve launched the Shape Tomorrow campaign to:

  • Empower and Excite Young People about the possibilities of their future
  • Educate Adults about the importance of summer camp

Every child has a character and dream to celebrate, and the unique experiences of summer camp can help them discover it.

These photos, taken by photographer Eunique Jones, bring the aspirations of our Y kids to life. Each time a photo is released, we ask you to help us celebrate the positive influence of a promising future.

Share our campaign
 if you believe "What we do today shapes our tomorrow."
