The Essence of the Y- With a commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living and fostering a sense of responsibility, the YMCA of Mount Vernon ensures that every individual regardless of age has access to the programs needed to learn, grow and thrive. With the support of our community 820 individuals were positively effected through the scholarship program in 2013. We awarded 218 scholarships with a value over $95,000 last year and the program is continually growing.
Scholarships are awarded anywhere from 10-75% off of membership and programs for children, adults and families based on household income.
