MIDDLE SCHOOL INITIATIVE

The DuBois Area YMCA is pleased to announce that the "7th Grade Initiative" has expanded to include all middle school age students in the 6th-8th grade. This program offers a free YMCA membership to students who register, participate and complete the program requirements. The goal of the Initiative is to inspire youth to discover their passions, seek a healthy lifestyle, and gain the developmental assets needed to avoid risky behaviors as they pursue success in school and life. This Initiative is available to students in the DuBois Area School District, Brockway Area School district and the DuBois Area Catholic Schools and Christian Schools.

Why Middle School Students?
Research shows that middle school is a critical time in a young person's life when exposure to risk factors greatly increases. Risk factors are conditions or influences that have been shown to increase the likelihood for unhealthy behaviors including substance abuse, delinquency, teen pregnancy, school drop-out and violence. It is also during the early teen years that youth begin to distance themselves from family and positive support systems. Through knowledge and implementation of the 40 developmental assets, this Initiative will help provide a framework for action that encourages middle school students to make a difference no matter who they are or what their life experiences are.

How do students join the program?
Click here for an Informational Flyer

Membership Restriction Details:
1. Does not apply to current YMCA members through either a student membership or a family membership. There will be no refunds or extension of time for current members.

2. Does not apply to students who have had a YMCA Student Membership within 90 days of the first day of school. 

3. You may only receive one free membership during your 6-8th grade years.

4. Any student who received a 7th grade Initiative membership during  2013-14 school year is not eligible to receive another free membership.

What does the membership include?
The use of YMCA facilities (in accordance with policies) during operating hours. Also includes after-school programs designated and conducted for middle school aged youth.
