Youth Investment Program

Ages 13 - 19

The YMCA Youth Investment Program intervenes and invests in the lives of at-risk youth ages 12-19. We provide support, guidance and the opportunity to fulfill required community service through a variety of job settings. Teens are introduced to the values and principles that will help them succeed in an array of work environments, while also being shown the true value in themselves. Participants are encouraged in life goal-setting and enhancing their work skills by working closely with positive adult mentors in a productive environment. 

At work in our community

Youth Investment Program provides lawn and yard care services including mowing, trimming, weeding, raking and cleaning flower beds. We offer a unique opportunity for local businesses, non-profits and individuals to partner with us and help area youth learn valuable job skills and work ethic. Discounted lawn services are performed alongside and under direct supervision of YMCA staff. 

To learn how you can support this valuable program or to schedule your lawn services, please contact Jesse Richner or call 509 777 9622  x 215.
