The YMCA may be the most extraordinary story ever told. It’s a tale of countless lives forever changed because they serendipitously intersected through a program, class, camp or volunteer activity at the Y.

Unfortunately, these stories are largely undocumented, because writing a good story is tough work – especially if you don’t write for a living.

Please see the sidebar for guidelines to help you bring your Y story to life.

We look forward to reading it, and sharing it. Thank you.
