Program 1

YMCA BLUE RIDGE PREPARES THE NEXT GENERATION OF LEADERS THROUGH TAILORED LEADERSHIP PROGRAMMING THAT KEEPS THEM ENGAGED AND ACTIVELY LEARNING THROUGH UNDERSTANDING AND APPLICATION. THEY MAY DRAW ON THE SKILLS LEARNED AT YMCA BLUE RIDGE - TEAMWORK, INTERPERSONAL COMMUNICATION, CRITICAL THINKING AND SOCIAL AWARENESS - IN ANY CONTEXT THROUGHOUT LIFE, AND WILL FIND THESE SKILLS ESSENTIAL TO BUILDING A SOLID FOUNDATION OF GOOD CHARACTER AND SELF-CONCEPT. OUR TEACHING MODEL CREATES CONFIDENT KIDS TODAY THAT WILL BECOME CONTRIBUTING, ENGAGED ADULTS TOMORROW. AT YMCA BLUE RIDGE, WE ARE SURROUNDED BY A UNIQUELY BEAUTIFUL NATURAL LANDSCAPE WHICH INFORMS AND INSPIRES OUR MISSION. WE ARE ABLE TO UTILIZE THE WORLD IMMEDIATELY AROUND US AS A PLATFORM FOR ADVENTURE, SELF- DISCOVERY, AND HANDS-ON LEARNING. WHETHER TRAVERSING A CHALLENGE COURSE, HIKING IN THE WOODS, EXPLORING A CREEK ECOSYSTEM, OR CONQUERING AN OUTDOOR TEAMBUILDING EXERCISE, OUR PROGRAM PARTICIPANTS ARE ENCOURAGED TO FACE NEW CHALLENGES IN A POSITIVE, ENERGIZING ENVIRONMENT. THEY ARE ABLE TO LEARN ABOUT THEMSELVES AND THEIR PEERS, NAVIGATE THEIR STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES; AND DEVELOP CONFIDENCE AND TRUST IN THEMSELVES AND OTHERS. YMCA BLUE RIDGE STAFF ARE EQUIPPED AND PROUD TO SEE EVERY INTERACTION WITH A YOUNG PERSON AS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR LEARNING, DEVELOPMENT, MENTORSHIP AND LIFE-LONG IMPACT. THE BELIEF THAT TODAY'S YOUTH ARE TOMORROW'S LEADERS IS AT THE CORE OF EVERYTHING WE DO, AND AS SUCH WE ARE COMMITTED AND AWARE OF OUR ROLE IN THEIR FORMATIVE YEARS.
