September is National Self-Care Awareness Month and is a good time to remind us all how essential the best practice of self-care is. This month, be intentional in your self-care pursuit by being good to yourself or setting aside time to partake in your favorite activity or experience that refills your “wellness” cup. Maintaining a healthy relationship with yourself is vital for our overall well-being. Take time to establish rituals or best practices that feed your mind, body and spirit. If you need a little extra encouragement to get you started, our Y team is here to help. Check in with one of our membership services staff, one of our healthy living professionals or even our Chaplain to point you in the right direction for self-care. We have three locations and multiple program offerings to help fit your needs.
Partnership with Glendale Unified School District
On August 17th our Y and GUSD launched our Recreational Enrichment Program serving over 150 students after the school day at Dunsmore and Monte Vista Elementary Schools. This is the first time in almost 2 decades that the YMCA of the Foothills and GUSD have an official services agreement focused on youth development. We are grateful for our partnership with GUSD and share the same vision in positively impacting youth through enrichment and socialization — elevating their overall wellness.
