“I love the bonds I am able to build with many of the youth in my role with YWCA. The best part of working with them is when they come back to visit the program and tell you how much you have influenced their life in positive ways.” ~ Shanika, Youth Program Coordinator
“I enjoy what I do. I get great satisfaction in helping someone learn to swim. I did this as a young person in high school and college and knew that when I retired, this would be something I would like to continue. I am fortunate to be doing this activity at such a great organization.” ~Ed, Swim Instructor
