Through the Adventure Guides program, parents and children develop strong bonds that support self-esteem and communication skills, setting the foundation for positive lifelong relationships: “Friends Forever.” Together, parents guide their children through a wide array of experiences aimed at helping children reach their full potential. They do this within a supportive small community of other parent-child pairs, which is their Circle. In Adventure Guides, parents and children develop healthy relationships, gain a sense of belonging, and learn the importance of giving back to the community through one-on-one interactions, activities with other families, and community service projects. Through Adventure Guides, you and your child will grow closer and develop memories and friends to last a lifetime.

ASPIRE (Achieving Sobriety by Promoting an Insightful Recovery Experience) is a pilot program developed by the YMCA of Montclair and the National Youth Recovery Foundation (NYRF), and funded in part by Partners for Health Foundation.

If you are between the ages of 18 and 30 and have 90 days or more of recovery from addiction to drugs or alcohol, ASPIRE is a program designed for you.

ASPIRE is a community based life-skill oriented program that is not associated with treatment, aftercare, Alcoholics Anonymous or any other recovery program.  Life, health and community are key components of ASPIRE.

The curriculum, designed by the NYRF, is based on interviews with hundreds of young people in recovery across the country. These young people identified a need for a community based program to fill in gaps around life skills, education and career planning that they missed while in active addiction.  They recommended a focus on their next phase of life, outside of their recovery program, that provided additional skill sets to enhance their lives including social, education and career goals.

The new program begins June 2, 2017.

What Makes Y Swimming Special

The YMCA of Montclair Dolphins Swim Team offers a year round opportunity for competitive swimming in both Y and USA Swimming competitions as well as seasonal instructional clinics for aspiring competitive athletes. The team is comprised of girls and boys from age 6 through high school.

As a YMCA program its goal is to strengthen the foundations of our community through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility and is supported by the YMCA of the USA.

The focus is, first and foremost, on the development of healthy, confident, values-centered individuals where training and competition are the vehicles by which this development occurs. In addition, as laid out by the Guiding Principles for YMCA Amateur Sports Competition, we strive to produce an atmosphere conducive to competition and opportunity for all. Everyone involved in the delivery of the program plays a critical role in this process. Coaches, YMCA leaders and volunteers assist individuals in their development by building positive relationships, acting with integrity and leading by example.

Our goal is to deliver a program that creates an excellent environment for developing multiple levels of competitive swimmer from beginners to swimmers who are nationally ranked. We believe the process of following the YMCA core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility in all aspects of our swim program will inevitably lead to success not only in swimming but in all areas of our swimmers’ lives.

In addition to working toward each individual’s personal success, the program stresses the team concept: each participant is a member of the Montclair YMCA Dolphins Swim Team. Membership on the team carries with it responsibility, loyalty, and dedication to each of the team members. Mutual support during training and competition are valuable assets attributable to the program. Parental support and involvement is required and are major incentives for many swimmers at all levels of competitive swimming.

For more information about the team and for tryout information, please see the team website at www.mymdolphins.org/.

STRENGTHENING
COMMUNITY

Syria Supper Club at the Y – Open to the Community

At the Y, we believe communities are at their strongest when everyone feels valued, has support to reach their potential and can fully participate in society. For over 170 years, the Y has helped immigrants integrate into their new neighborhoods and prepared receiving communities to be welcoming and inclusive.

In this spirit, we invite you to share a special meal with the Syria Supper Club, an organization dedicated to supporting families of Syrian refugees recently settled in New Jersey. The meal will be prepared by one or more of our new Syrian neighbors who will share their traditional cooking skills in a table full of traditional Syrian food. Help welcome our new neighbors. Enjoy the food, conversation and making friends. 100% of the proceeds benefit our Syrian neighbors.

Members helping members with special needs to exercise. We link member volunteers with members with special needs (autism, cognitive disability, blindness, etc.), who could use a little assistance to navigate the Y and get through a workout. Support may include help in the cardio room, guidance in the weight room and pool, or just getting from room to room. Emotional support and encouragement is also a big part of being a Buddy. Buddies are not expected to, or allowed to, assist in the locker rooms. Family members must provide any assistance required. The Y will provide training and ongoing support for volunteers. All that is needed is a desire to get involved.
