The YMCA of the Triangle's 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 crews with others in their community. These crews are normally composed of six to 10 father/child pairs and meet twice per month.
WHAT will we do?
The Y Guides program is action-oriented! Crews meet twice per month. Meetings can happen anywhere! In a crew member's house, at a local park, in a local YMCA, or other community centers. One of the monthly crew meetings typically includes fun activities such as games, crafts and stories. The other meeting allows crews to organize monthly outings such as camping, community service projects, hiking, cookouts and much more. Both the father and child receive awards and patches for their accomplishments.
