GivingTuesday, December 3, is an opportunity for millions of people around the world to rally around the causes they believe in and build stronger neighborhoods, cities, and regions. United Way of Southeast Louisiana is proud to stand with our Community Partners to make that impact go even farther.
Where there's a Y, there's a way. Join Us in strengthening the lives of children and teens and our community. Because of your generosity we are able to offer financial assistance to families and individuals so that no one is turned away because of an inability to pay. Every donation makes a difference.
At the Y we are for youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. Dryades Y nurtures the potential of every child and teen by supporting their academic, physical, and social-emotional development through holistic programs that help youth thrive. The Y's summer and afterschool programs focus on closing achievement gaps and giving youth a safe place to be, while also helping them realize what they can achieve. Youth can explore science and nature, develop new talents, engage in new activities, gain independence, and make lasting friendships and memories, and just as important - have fun.
The mission of the Dryades YMCA is to help people develop character, competence, and commitment.
