We believe that all kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve. In Connecticut, we know that over 100,000 children are unsupervised after school and 40% of our children are entering kindergarten unprepared for school due to their lack of preschool experiences. In Naugatuck we know nearly 17% of public high school students fail to graduate.
Health and well-being are about balance. In our community we know that 1 in every 6 people is obese. The Naugatuck Y engages over 1,000 youth and 850 active older adults in physical and social activities yearly.
Bridging the gaps that divide people in our communities. In our community, we know that 47% of children live in low-income families and 29% of seniors are living alone and isolated from friends and family. Annually the Y involves 40 volunteer leaders in raising funds to ensure low income and socially isolated individuals can participate in Y programs.
