Everyone deserves a chance to participate in YMCA programming.
The Poole Family YMCA is committed to serving families with special needs through youth and adult programs, membership, wellness and specialized programming.
The Poole Family YMCA is creating programs, classes and opportunities with our YMCA. These opportunities are adapted for participants with cognitive or developmental challenges.
"We want all children and families to be able to participate in YMCA programs," says Beth Poter, Membership Engagement Director for the Poole Y.
The No Limits Initiative, or NLI, has been running at the Y for more than a year. Previous programs have included play time, special crafts and smaller group activities as well as holiday events and swimming.
You can find more information and upcoming programs here, or join our Facebook group for regular updates and contact our staff to be added to our NLI interest list to receive email communications!
