  1. I’m a reaching out from the Lampeter-Strasburg YMCA.

    We are interesting in partnering with your child development program to help me any volunteer needs or work service hours needs of your students. We currently run a Parents Night Out Program once a month to give families in our community a much needed break, and provide a healthy outlet for children. We are hoping to add in new members of our team that are interested in child development and need real world hands on time. We are also beginning a program during the day providing an indoor gym and activity time for families, especially over the winter season where it is often too cold to be outside, and we are interested in helping train volunteers in how to do activity planning.
