Mission Statement

To put Judeo-Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.

Description

Y Sports Buddies is an inclusive program for children ages 4 through adulthood with specials needs such as autism. Children participate with typically developing peer volunteers in a variety of athletic activities including basketball, soccer, cheerleading, and swimming. This unique program strengthens our community by bringing diverse populations together, creating bonds that will last a life time.

Participants with special needs develop sports and social skills while increasing self-confidence and healthy lifestyle habits, and typically developing teens increase social awareness, learn leadership skills, and the value of responsibility through their role as volunteers.
