DO YOU WANT TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN SOMEONE’S LIFE?  

Did you know that your local YMCA offers scholarship to deserving families in your communities? 

Today 1 out of 5 participants at the North Suburban YMCA receive financial assistance.  That financial assistance comes directly from people like you who believe in giving back and helping others.  With the help of scholarship donations, our Y provides after-school care, special needs programming, youth sports, life-saving swim lessons, camp and other services to EVERYONE regardless of their ability to pay.  We have helped more than 2800 famlies in 2018 alone and you can help us again in 2019.

This year our Y is celebrating its 50th Anniversary and we will be hosting a special 13th Annual Ken & Alta Thiel Strong Kids Fundrasing Event on April 12, 2019 at Chevy Chase Country Club in Wheeling.  We are expecting over 500 guests where our mission is to raise $250,000 in scholarship funds so that NO ONE gets turned away at our Y, today or in the future.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

We would be grateful if you would consider supporting our efforts by offering a sponsorship donation.  With that donation, your business would be visable through social media, sponsorship signage at event, AD in event programs and much more.

The effects of the Y are far-reaching, but it begins with people like you who believe in what we do for our communities.  Your consideration of a sponsorship donation would mean the world to us and it would help keep our communities strong!

TARA WESSELINKIMG 1263 Tara Wesselink

Front Desk Customer Service Specialist/ Social Responsibility and Sustainability Coordinator

Did you know Tara likes Pina Colada and getting caught in the rain? Well if you didn't now you do. The things she likes most about her job includes: the openness of the front desk, our varying artists each month and seeing the Y members happy and healthy. 

"I believe one of our basic needs is to connect with others. I consider it my privilege to try to connect with as many of our members as I can at the Front Desk.  Whether it's addressing someone by name, asking about a loved one or finding out how someone's weekend went.. I enjoy hearing other's stories and making them feel welcome here at the NSYMCA."

Camp Registrar / Adventure Guides / Volunteer Coordinator

Nicole is a jack of all trades and gives logistical and administrative support across several departments such as Summer Camp, Adventure Guides and Y-time.

Nicole gives our members details to help them better understand the various aspects of the programming and how different aspects of each program can be intertwined to create a schedule that works best with their family.

When asked what she likes most about her job at the Y, Nicole replied, "What I love about the Y is the family environment and community it's provided my family. I love watching my children interact with the members and staff alike! I love the inclusion, equality and respect that our staff and members live by and inturn teaches my own children. What I love about my job the most is being able to help different departments, staff and members. Each department has a different set of members and staff and I love interacting and being involveed in that.

Fun fact about Nicole is that she can wiggle her ears and nose.
