Spring has gotten off to a great start! The Wilson-Gray YMCA Youth & Family Center held its second annual College Tour and our Youth Teen Incentive Program (Y-TIP) hosted a record 41 students from different programs and high schools throughout the Hartford area. We kicked off the week-long tour in North Carolina. There, we visited the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill and North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University. Our next destination was Virginia; within two days we visited four schools including Virginia Commonwealth University, University of Richmond, Norfolk State University and Hampton University. At Hampton, we were delighted to be greeted by former program member and current college sophomore, Khalil Abrams. Our tour concluded in Maryland at the University of Maryland and finally Morgan State University.
After such an eventful week of tours and traveling, we were able to squeeze in some much needed down time. What better way to do that than with major league baseball? We attended a Washington Nationals and a Philadelphia Phillies game.

The YMCA of Greater Hartford is a cause driven organization.
This means we think differently because we consider our community needs first, find the resources to address these needs, and measure our impact; we put a caring adult into the life of every child, are good stewards of the resources entrusted to us, and work in collaboration with others to eliminate the disparities in health and education; and it means we communicate our vision to our members and celebrate the work we do by collecting and telling our stories in the community.
