teen girls small7th Grade Initiative

2017-2018 School Year
September 1, 2017 through August 31, 2018

Lower Bucks Family YMCA offers free memberships for all 7th graders in our community! Lower Bucks Family YMCA is pleased to offer seventh grade students free membership to support and encourage youth to live healthy lifestyles and to make responsible choices.

Why 7th Graders?

Research shows that seventh-grade is a critical time in a young person's life when exposure to risk factors greatly increase. 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. The Y makes accessible the support and opportunities that empower these youth to reach their personal potential. We also provide youth with the knowledge, skills, character and passion to be more active in the community as adults.

How to Join

  1. 7th grader must be present and bring a school ID, roster or report card to the Welcome Center.
  2. Parent or guardian must be present to complete required membership paperwork and sign form.
  3. 7th grader must complete a swim test and Teen Strength & Fitness Orientation.
  4. 7th grader may then begin using a membership right away.
