I support the YMCA at Virginia Tech!

YMCA at Virginia Tech


Raised: $0Remaining: $200

I became involved with the YMCA at Virginia Tech my freshman year of college after the Residential Leadership Community I was living in challenged me to take on a volunteer project in the community. I started out planning a small fundraising event, to becoming a peer leader for one of the largest sustainability initiatives on campus, to becoming a member of exec, to now becoming the incoming student programs president for the 2017-2018 year. This organization has gone beyond giving me the typical leadership skills and service oppotunities that come with other groups on campus. This organization has given me a strong connection to the Blacksburg community that has truly made this place my home away from home. When I think about my time at the Y, I think about all the community members I have come into contact with. I think about all the community members lives that the Y positively benefits. I think about how lucky I am to have come into contact with the wonderful organization! Help me reach my fundraising goal to give back to an organization that means so much to me and the Blacksburg community!
