$5/month, endless IMPACT
The IMPACT Network, is a community service, professional development and educational network for changemakers to work together to address critical community issues, like health equity, financial wellness, mental health, food security and more.
For just $60/year or $5/month, and no YMCA membership required, IMPACT Network participants have the opportunity to actively engage in network building, community relationship fostering and professional growth opportunities through symposiums, service projects and networking events. Network members will also gain access to the IMPACT directory to further engage with their peers outside of IMPACT events.
Symposium and service projects starting Spring 2022!
These symposium topics and action projects will refresh yearly to ensure the most critically important and relevant topics throughout our community are addressed.
