Marlins Swim Team

Our son, Johnathan, started with the Marlins Swim Team in October 2018. He has learned discipline and structure while participating in this setting. The dedication of the coaches superseded our expectations and Jonathan is learning life lessons as well as swimming techniques. Dearborn YMCA is a diamond in the rough and we are proud to be apart of the organization.

After-School Program

Enrolling my children in the Afterschool’s remote learning program was the best decision I could have ever made! I am a mother of four small kids and work full time so it is a challenge for me to work and conduct remote learning for my two small school age children during school hours! The After-school Coordinator and staff worked extensively with my children one on one and the ending result is both of my children received the honor roll 1st quarter! My son’s teacher stated upon returning to school that she could tell he understood lessons taught from remote learning! I am so thankful to the After-school staff for their hard work and dedication to the children of the After-school program!

Pathway to Employment

The Pathway to Employment staff believed in me and helped boost my confidence. They knew I needed a little push to help find my niche, so they provided me vocational counseling. I was able to train as an EKG assistant. After I obtained my certification I knew it was all on me from there. I would no longer have to work a dead end job. This little piece of paper gave me life and this program sought out what I needed as an individual and helped me with my future.
