Social Responsibility Through Enrichment Events

Lakeland Hills Family YMCA mission is to provide social responsibility to our community. By offering Enrichment Events focused on wellness, nutrition and disease awareness, we help educate people about important health topics and encourage them to take steps to improve their physical and mental health. By doing so, Lakeland Hills Y has a positive impact on the entire community by reducing healthcare costs, improving productivity, and increasing overall quality of life. We work hard to make a positive difference in our community.

Drowning Elimination

Drowning can happen nearly anywhere with standing water. Parents and caregivers need to equip them with the tools they need to be confident in and around water, so they don’t lose out on the health benefits of exercise, the opportunities to bond with family and friends and the sense of accomplishment when they learn new skills. Teaching children how to be safe around water is a necessity. The YMCA can help you make sure your children learn essential water safety skills, which can open up a world of possibilities for them to satisfy their curiosity safely.
