Upper Bucks Y fetes role model


Jonathan Walsh of Quakertown has been named the Upper Bucks YMCA Role Model of the Year for the 2017-18 school year.

The award, selected annually by the afterschool program staff of Upper Bucks YMCA, recognizes a participant’s embodiment of the Y’s core values of honest, caring, respect and responsibility during his or her time in the Y’s Teen Fusion program for the academic school year.

Teen Fusion is an afterschool program (that runs during the school year) and provides full privilege members between the ages of 11 to 14 the opportunity to access the Upper Bucks YMCA without the direct supervision of a parent or guardian.

The Upper Bucks YMCA provides adult supervision in designated areas during this time and ensures a positive and safe environment for your child. Supervisors encourage interaction between participants and occasionally lead structured games and activities. Participants have the opportunity to be active, socialize with others their age and work on homework each day.
