Sponsor a teenager in your community to have unlimited access to 21 YMCA of South Hampton Roads locations from June 1–August 31. Through three important community partners—YOU, the Y and a match sponsor—the sponsor-a-teen summer program is made possible. The Y provides a reduced membership rate, you sponsor a teen for a month or a summer, and the Y secures a sponsor to match your gift. Together, we can provide a safe place for our teens to thrive, connect, and grow this summer.
FOR A MONTH
For $25/month, you can sponsor a teen and provide access to the Y for a month. And, the Y will find a donor to sponsor the remainder of the teen's membership dues.
FOR A SUMMER
For $75, you can sponsor a teen and provide Y access June–August. And, the Y will find a donor to sponsor the remainder of the teen's membership dues.
Teens: complete a quick, easy membership form. Your parent/guardian will then be notified by text message to sign a participation waiver (it might take a couple of minutes for the text to send), then we'll activate your free membership.
Parents/Guardians: complete a quick, easy membership form and sign the waiver. Then, we'll activate your teen's free membership starting June 1.
Sponsor a teen for a month for $25 or for a summer for $75 with a 100% tax-deductible donation. You can choose any level of donation and all funds will be reserved for teen membership access.
