ADRIANA’S STORY

Adriana

Child Care scholarship recipient
For Adriana and her mom, Sherry, participation in YMCA child care through a Partner of Youth Annual Campaign scholarship has provided an opportunity for learning, growth and fun. Sherry said that receiving a child care scholarship has made a huge impact on their family.

“It allowed us to be more financially secure while still providing a quality child care education for Adriana,” Sherry said.

Through her scholarship, Adriana has the opportunity to attend a Y School Age site – where she builds relationships with friends, participates in an accredited curriculum and learns life lessons.

“I feel so happy that I get to come here!” Adrianna said. “I feel so happy to be with my friends.”

Sherry said that Y Child Care has made a huge impact on her daughter’s life, allowing Adriana to learn and grow in ways that might not have been possible otherwise.

“(YMCA Child Care) has allowed Adriana to be more independent and taught her to problem solve on her own,” Sherry said, adding that she’s seen big strides in Adriana’s reading skills, as well as her confidence, since starting at the Y.

More than anything, Sherry wanted to send her gratitude to everyone who works to support the Y’s Partner of Youth Annual Campaign.

“I would like to give a huge thanks to all the donors that give to the Y,” she said. “Without the donations, these scholarships would not be possible.”

Partner of Youth Scholarships allow hundreds of kids to attend child care programs throughout our community every day. These programs focus on building the whole child – in mind, body and spirit.
