The YMCA of the Triangle Y Guides program focuses on strengthening the father-child relationship through one-on-one activities. It’s through these shared experiences that fathers and their children grow closer and form memories that last a lifetime.
Y Guides is for dads and their children in rising first through third grade. The participants form tribes with others in their community. These tribes are normally composed of seven to nine father/ child pairs and meet twice a month.
WHAT will we do?
The Y Guides program is action-oriented! Tribes meet twice a month. One meeting is in a member's home with fun activities such as games, crafts and stories. The other meeting allows tribes to organize monthly outings such as camping, community service projects, hiking, cookouts and much more. Both the father and child receive feather awards and patches for their accomplishments.
