The YMCA Junior Board has partnered with the Department of Social Services to sponsor weekly swim lessons for students in the Byram Archibald Neighborhood Center (BANC) afterschool program.

The Junior Board held a fundraising event at local restaurant, Douro, and surpassed their goal by raising more than $3,000 for the Y Community Matters Fund. The swim program is one of many youth initiatives supported by the Junior Board.

Laura McKittrick, former Junior Board Chairman and founder of the Greenwich Girl brand, was involved in the formation of the board in the Spring of 2013. During her time as chairman, Ms. McKittrick helped recruit over 20 locals to form this impressive group of young professionals.

“Over the last few months, we have been working to solidify the mission and purpose of the Junior Board, which is to encourage more involvement among young adults in supporting the efforts of the YMCA,” Ms. McKittrick said. “After the great success of this fundraiser, I am confident leaving the board in the capable hands of the new Executive Committee.”

Chair members Chris Cortese, Shahryar Oveissi and Lindsay Longmire will lead the Junior Board into the 2015, as the YMCA approaches its centennial year. The group will work to support current initiatives of the Y, with a focus on Youth Development, while continuing to promote further involvement amongst young adults in Greenwich.
