2012–2013 YMCA of Greater Rochester Annual Report


For Our Future

Throughout its history, the YMCA has been a global organization committed to providing

local community support where needed. Within the pages of the YMCA’s founding story, the

origin of this “calling” to partner for the betterment of community is evident. It states that

“although an association of young men meeting around a common purpose was nothing new,

the Y offered something unique for its time. The organization’s drive to meet social need in

the community was compelling.”

“Individually, we are

one drop. Together,

we are an ocean.”

- Ryunosuke Satoro

Almost two centuries later, the YMCA stands by a belief that if citizens in need are provided

support, resources, and guidance, they can improve their own lives and the lives of others.

The YMCA has recognized over time, however, that it cannot pursue these social goals in

isolation. Its true power comes through collaboration with the many business, government,

and education organizations at the heart of building strong communities.

159 years strong, the YMCA of Greater Rochester has also built its foundation on partnership.

On the walls of our buildings and throughout the pages of our history are the names of

organizations and individuals from across Greater Rochester’s many sectors that have helped

us to strengthen this prosperous community. Among those organizations is Bivona Child

Advocacy Center, which is receiving this year’s collaboration award for its cutting edge

partnership with the YMCA and other community organizations to prevent child sexual abuse.

As one of the area’s leading nonprofits committed to strengthening communities through youth

development, healthy living, and social responsibility, we recognize our responsibility to

collaborate with local organizations committed to common goals. Eliminating duplication of

efforts and unnecessary redundancies in service and program offerings are just two of the many

benefits that can be gained when community leaders come together for the best interests of all.

Within the pages of this report, are three great stories of the power of collaboration. Leilani

Hernandez found enrichment through the YMCA’s after school program thanks to a successful

partnership with School No. 8 and funding from the United Way. Joanne Johnson embraced a

healthier lifestyle and avoided the onset of diabetes with the help of a YMCA program made

possible by MVP Health Care and Greater Rochester Health Foundation. Marta Valentin’s five

children are benefitting from a 12-year partnership between the YMCA and Eugenio Maria

de Hostos Charter School, which has made possible athletic and swimming instruction for the

students of this school without gym facilities.

These are just a few of the many stories from across the YMCA of Greater Rochester that

exemplify our commitment to partnership. Collaboration is truly at the heart of our cause.

As we look back at another successful year, we are grateful to our many “partners in cause.”

The support we have received in 2012 through our staff members, and the volunteers and

organizations that collaborate with us to deliver YMCA programs, services, and events, have

helped make Rochester strong, healthy, and thriving.

Together, we can preserve this great community for the future.

Collaborating . . . To Develop Youth

After school

programming impacts

student success

Leilani Hernandez was bored when she got home from

kindergarten, until her mom enrolled her in the YMCA’s

after school program at School 8.

“I’m really

pleased with the

program. They

teach her a lot.”

-Michel Gonzalez

Now in second grade, the 7-year-old loves the art projects, literacy computer programs,

science sessions, and homework help. Her group even brainstormed to write its own rules

and makes sure they are followed. Among them, “no hitting back if somebody hits you.

Tell a grownup,” says Leilani. “If any of us breaks the rules, the kids remind them.”

Michel Gonzalez, her mother, says “besides learning new academic things every day, she’s

learning to work in a group. When she comes home, she has so much to talk about. I’m really

pleased with the program. They teach her a lot.”

Thanks to funding from the United Way of Greater Rochester, the state-licensed program

is free to students in grades K-6 at School 8. Among the program’s other collaborations: a

teacher from School 8 directs literacy work and Boy Scout and Girl Scout leaders run troops

during the afternoon program.

“The Y plays an important role in helping youth succeed,” says Patricia Davis, director of

community investment for the United Way of Greater Rochester. “Because our youth spend

the majority of their waking hours out of school, providing high quality, positive, engaging

programming to fill this time can make the world of difference in their behavior and their

school work.” Research shows that local youth who participate in United Way-funded

after school programs perform better in school, attend school more regularly, and have

fewer unexcused absences than their peers who do not, she adds.

The YMCA program at School 8 has

served more than 115 students through

this school year, using the gym, cafeteria,

computer lab, and several classrooms.

Groups also travel across the Driving

Park Bridge for swim lessons and

physical education programs at the

Maplewood YMCA.

Sara Lewis, vice president of youth

development at the YMCA, says,

“I think the Y as a community partner

can really turn things around for youth

academically and in terms of wellness

and social/emotional skills.”

A look at the future:

YMCA after school programs continue

to evolve away from child care toward

holistic enrichment, including arts

education, mentoring, service learning,

academic support, social/emotional

development, and parent engagement.

• With the United Way, the YMCA is

working on offering a six-week Y

Readers summer program for students

younger than third grade.

Collaborating . . .

Endorsed Program

Focuses on


Joanne Johnston’s doctor warned her that she was prediabetic,

making it more likely that she would face the blood glucose

testing, insulin doses, and risks to her heart, kidneys, nerves,

and eyes that diabetes brings. However, the 78-year-old from

Gates had trouble losing excess weight on her own.

To Build Healthier Lives

“I love it! I needed

the change with my

eating habits – and

more exercise.”

-Joanne Johnston

Help finally came in a letter and through a call from her health insurer, inviting her to

participate in the YMCA’s evidence-based Diabetes Prevention Program.

The free one-year program includes 16 weekly classes and then monthly maintenance

meetings. Lifestyle coaches teach overweight adults who are at risk for type 2 diabetes

how to adopt and maintain a lifestyle that can improve their health, reduce health care

costs, and extend their life.

Johnston learned to control portions, track calories and fat, and eat more vegetables and

fruit. She got back into the habit of walking at the mall with friends three times a week.

On other days, she pedals her once-neglected exercise bike, now positioned by the TV.

Within 10 weeks, Johnston lost 10 pounds. Her usually high blood pressure improved,

and she is now more energetic. “I have more ambition,” she says. “I’m able to do more.”

The program is offered at YMCAs nationwide. In October 2012, MVP Gold became the

first Medicare Advantage program anywhere to cover the program. “Educating people about

how to eat healthier, stay active, and take other steps to avoid developing type 2 diabetes

is an important way MVP can contribute to helping to create healthier communities,” says

Denise V. Gonick, president and CEO of MVP Health Care.

Greater Rochester Health Foundation (GRHF) supports the program financially because

rigorous studies have shown that modest changes can avoid diabetes, says John Urban,

GRHF president and CEO. “This fact, along with the YMCA of Greater Rochester’s

demonstrated ability to execute programs effectively, made this an investment our board

of directors was pleased to support.”

Since September 2010, more than 190 people in the Rochester area have participated in

the program.

“I love it,” says Johnston, a retired Kodak worker. “I needed the change with my eating

habits – and more exercise.”

A look at the future:

• Early learning and after school

programs at the Y will adopt new

standards for food, minimize screen

time, and maximize physical activity

time daily.

YMCA employees are participating in

the Wegmans/Finger Lakes Health

Systems Agency’s blood pressure

challenge to improve their own

health. Also, YMCA fitness crews

can provide blood pressure testing

for other employers.

Collaborating . . . To Be Socially Responsible

A 12-year partnership

gives back to the community

Marta Valentin never learned to swim. So she’s especially grateful that four of her five

children receive swimming lessons at the YMCA as part of their school day.

Through a creative partnership, the school contracts with the YMCA to provide the facilities

for physical education classes and the staff to lead the classes for the 400 students in

grades K-8 who attend Eugenio Maria de Hostos Charter School. Neither of the school’s

two buildings in northeast Rochester has a full-size gym or a large field.

Since opening in 2000, the charter school has bused students weekly to the Maplewood

and Carlson MetroCenter branches. In addition, the YMCA received support from the Greater

Rochester Health Foundation to provide equipment for physical activities suited to small

spaces at the school. Since the school added middle school grades, the YMCA has provided

space for modified sports teams to practice and play games.

“I love that they go to the YMCA,” says Valentin. Her kids agree. “I think it’s very important

kids know how to swim,” says Simone Mateo, who’s 12 and has passed her test to swim in

the deep end. Fun sports such as kickball and flag football are another plus, she says. “I like

how in gym we’re pretty active.”

A look at the future:

As part of a collaborative with Bivona Child Advocacy Center and other Rochester community

organizations to prevent child sexual abuse, the YMCA will begin offering Darkness to Light

Stewards of Children trainings to YMCA staff, volunteers, and members. It is the goal of

the group to train 28,000 adults in Monroe County within five years.

In 2012, the YMCA of the USA announced its Achievement Gap initiative to substantially

increase the impact of YMCA early learning and out-of-school programs. Specifically, the

initiative will increase kindergarten readiness, reverse summer learning loss, and accelerate

academic achievement, ultimately ensuring school readiness and success for low-income

youth ages 3 to 10 who are behind in school or at risk of becoming behind. The YMCA

of Greater Rochester is deeply committed to eradicating the achievement gap in our

community and is proud to have been selected to pilot both the Summer Learning and

Afterschool national signature program models at Roberto Clemente School No. 8 during

the 2013-2014 program year.

“I think it’s very

important kids know

how to swim.”

-Simone Mateo

Her brother, Richard Priest, who’s 9, is enjoying lessons in the pool and tennis, soccer, and

running laps in the gym. “You get energy,” he says. “You get exercise, and you get healthy.”

School families turn out for an annual school wellness fair at the Carlson branch and for

an end-of-year picnic at Camp Arrowhead.

“The Y has been just a natural fit for us,” says Jeff Halsdorfer, principal. “The benefit

for our students and our families is that the Y has done a phenomenal job of promoting a

healthy lifestyle.”

Many Rochester students live in neighborhoods where it is not safe to play outdoors, notes

Sara Lewis, vice president of youth development. “This is expanding the walls of the Y,

bringing people into the branch who wouldn’t otherwise come in.” Connecting the charter

school families to the Y leads some to become members – perhaps with financial scholarships –

for safe, fun physical activity and lasting relationships.

That happened this spring for Valentin and her family, who joined the Maplewood branch

near their home. The 50-year-old says it is not too late for her to learn to swim herself:

“I want to take lessons.”

A Partnership to Stop

Child Sexual Abuse

Bivona Child Advocacy Center

Honored With Collaboration Award

The YMCA of Greater Rochester began a partnership with Bivona Child

Advocacy Center in 2012, collaborating with local nonprofit and government

organizations, to address the epidemic of child sexual abuse. Forming the

Darkness to Light Collaborative, this group aims to empower all adults in

the Greater Rochester area to fully understand and be able to identify

the signs of child sexual abuse in order to take the necessary steps to protect children

suspected of being abused. It is the group’s goal to have 28,000 Greater Rochester adults

trained in child sexual abuse prevention by 2015.

“We have evaluated and provided treatment and services to more than 9,000 children since

opening Bivona in 2004,” says Mary Whittier, Bivona Child Advocacy Center Executive Director.

“Most of these children are abused by someone they know, love, and trust. We want for

these children the same level of awareness and advocacy as we see for childhood cancer,

autism, and ADD.”

Bivona Child Advocacy Center hired a Prevention and Education Outreach Specialist at the

end of 2012 who leads a training program for employees and members of organizations,

schools, community groups, businesses, parents, caretakers, and concerned and responsible

individuals throughout the community who are interested in becoming Stewards of Children

through the Darkness to Light (D2L) curriculum.

With 14 staff members trained to deliver Stewards of Children, the YMCA of Greater Rochester

is also one of the primary providers of D2L-endorsed prevention education to the community.

The YMCA of Greater Rochester, Bivona, and many of the other organizations within the

Darkness to Light Collaborative are making their trainers available to organizations across

Greater Rochester that would like to offer the training to staff members.

“At the YMCA of Greater Rochester we take child protection very seriously. The safety of all

of our members, volunteers, and staff is a top priority in the development of our policies

across the organization,” says George Romell, president and CEO. “However, we know that

this alone does not keep children safe in our community. With the health and well being of

children and families at the heart of our mission, we recognize our role in stepping up to

convene leaders and engage the entire community in prevention.”

Through a partnership worthy of the 2013 Collaboration Award, Bivona Child Advocacy

Center and the YMCA continue to spread awareness about Darkness to Light throughout

the community. As said best by Mary Whittier at a D2L press conference last fall, “unlike

some other childhood threats, there is something we can all do about child sexual abuse.”

Collaborating for Our Cause

Breaking Records to Benefit Thousands

The YMCA of Greater Rochester celebrated an incredible achievement in the 2012 Invest in

Youth Campaign. For the first time in our nearly 160 year history, over $2 million was raised

during the annual support campaign. Led by YMCA Board Chair Dr. Mary-Beth A. Cooper,

Invest in Youth Chair Joseph R. Teresi, together with hundreds of volunteers and YMCA staff

members, raised funds to ensure no one is turned away from YMCA programs and services.

The Rochester community once again proved its deep commitment to youth development,

healthy living, and social responsibility. Over 8,500 donors helped make a difference in

the lives of thousands of their neighbors. The Invest in Youth Campaign made a healthier

lifestyle available to families, gave children the chance to experience the joys of summer

camp, provided seniors with the opportunity to join their peers in fellowship and healthy

living, and much more.

The YMCA is grateful for each volunteer that supported the Invest in Youth Campaign with

their time, talent, and treasure. Volunteers spent hours on the phone with donors, youth

sports teams raised money through special events, local business owners made special gifts,

YMCA staff members gave at record levels, and families made the choice to support their

neighbors—everyone played a special role in the 2012 Invest in Youth Campaign.

As the YMCA looks to the future, 2012 will be the benchmark for future annual support

campaigns, helping to pave the way for even greater philanthropy. We thank all of our

supporters for making this exciting future possible!

Y Partners Can Benefit Future Generations of Campers

Summer camp is a special place. Hundreds of boys and girls attended YMCA Camp Cory in the

treasured Finger Lakes region and YMCA Camp Gorham in the beautiful Adirondack Mountains

in 2012. These youth experienced the great outdoors through fun activities and creative

staff, while at the same time built valuable self-confidence skills and lifelong friendships.

The YMCA of Greater Rochester believes that every child deserves to go to camp, regardless

of financial circumstances. A new YMCA Campership Program has been established to

help send more children to camp and provide a connection to these youth by the generous

donor-families for which the Camperships are named.

The YMCA Campership Program will provide a scholarship in your name (or family’s name)

for a child to attend either Camp Cory or Camp Gorham each summer. The executive

director of the overnight camp will select the youth based upon financial need and the

donor’s specific wishes. Depending on the size of your gift, you have the potential to impact

the lives of many youth campers. An endowment gift of $25,000 is needed to establish a

YMCA Campership to provide support for a child to attend one week at either overnight

camp every year into the future.

To establish a YMCA Campership in your name or create a campership through a planned

gift in your estate, contact Jeremy A. Cooney, Esq., vice president of development, at

585-263-3925 or jeremy.cooney@rochesterymca.org.
