The Newton YMCA is a leading nonprofit in Jasper County committed to strengthening community through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. The Y is the unparalleled cause for strengthening community because we are the community. We are a powerful association of men, women and children joined together by a shared commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living and fostering a sense of social responsibility.
With the values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility as our guide, the Newton YMCA believes that lasting personal and social change can only come about when we all work together to invest in our kids, our health and our neighbors. That's why every day, we work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.
At the Y, we welcome everyone. When you join the Y, you belong to a community of men, women and children who strive every day to be healthy, confident, connected and secure. When you support the Y, you continue to strengthen our community and move us all forward by providing financial assistance for people who need us the most. When you volunteer at the Y, you take an active role in making a meaningful, enduring impact right in your own community. When you advocate for the Y, you join a diverse movement committed to supporting and serving our community through promoting youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.Together, we make a difference.
Newton YMCA establishes college scholarship
Applications for the new Newton YMCA College Scholarship are now available.
The scholarship was recently established to help students seeking high education and to promote youth development, one of the Y’s three main focuses.
One senior graduating from NHS will be awarded a one-time $500 scholarship to attend a two- or four-year college or university of their choice. Preference will be given to students who demonstrate the four core values of the YMCA – caring, respect, responsibility and honesty. NHS seniors can apply for the scholarship by requesting an application from their guidance counselor.
Students may also request an application form from Jessica Lowe, YMCA Marketing Director, via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Completed applications should be returned to NHS guidance department, mailed or dropped of at the Newton Y on April 30.
