Earlier this month, on National Summer Learning Day, the South Side YMCA was visited by long-time YMCA supporter and State Representative Barbara Flynn-Currie. She met with South Side YMCA Executive Director Cherese Ledet and with Jill Edelblute, Senior Director of Government Relations for the YMCA of Metropolitan Chicago and took a tour of the facility.

This summer, the YMCA of Metro Chicago partnered with the Illinois Institute of Technology to provide 3-day camps that encourage girl power. Rep. Currie observed the Y’s STEM Camp program, Day Camp, Early Head Start programs, and other services at the Y.

She enjoyed seeing some of the programs the South Side YMCA has in action and wrote an article about it. Visit the Hyde Park Herald website to read more about her visit.
