The YMCA Survivorship & Wellness Program powered by Moffitt:
The YMCA Survivorship & Wellness Program powered by Moffitt serves people affected by cancer and empowers them to reclaim their health and well-being. YMCA of the Suncoast is honored to offer this program to residents of Pinellas, Pasco, Hernando and Citrus counties. Our cancer survivors’ program has served more than 45,000 people affected by cancer at nearly 600 YMCA locations throughout the country.
DIY at the YMCA:
Whether you offer to teach a class, lead a program, or even just offer a helping hand, you’re welcome here. We call it “DIY At The YMCA,” short for “do it yourself,” and it’s all about sharing together. Some of our active older adults have taught guitar lessons, knitting and bible studies. Each one of our YMCA locations serves a unique community so why not bring your unique talents and share with all.
You can choose to volunteer at special events or to work with members daily. With a focus on youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility, Y volunteers give men, women, and children of all ages and from all walks of life the resources and support they need to be healthy, confident, connected, and secure.
