“We educate and motivate children, families and individuals to live healthy, fulfilled lives”
Carlisle Family YMCA offers classes to the greater Carlisle community that empower them to live healthier lives. Youth empowerment and development programs like “T.R.A.I.L,” which provides teens “the opportunity to develop skills in group organization, communication and social interaction through healthy, non-competitive group and individual adventure-based activities,” help foster a sustainable community of engaged, active citizens. Other opportunities, such as Home School Outdoor Education Days, empower home schooled children to explore the natural world through activities like canoeing, fishing, and archery. Carlisle Family YMCA also offers traditional fitness classes and other wellness courses for adults, which aim to build a healthier community. The organization as a whole is committed to youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility, all three of which are necessary in building a sustainable community.
