Just what is it that makes the YMCA of Greater Flint program so unique? Perhaps the Y’s Character Development initiative is the most important element in all of its programming. Character Development teaches program participants the four cornerstones of true character: caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility. The YMCA of Greater Flint’s commitment to character development makes its programs extraordinarily valuable to our community. Everyone involved from staff to volunteers is committed to accepting the role of a teacher of the values as an integral part of his or her job. By participating in programs at the YMCA of Greater Flint, you and your children might just leave with more than you expect.
