Superheroes Help Create Impact for the Y

Engaged learning is a signature quality of a #SpringfieldCollege education. Our YMCA management students recently partnered with the Farmington Valley Y on a fundraising project. In preparation for the night of calling, students designed and led a training workshop at the weekly Y Club Meeting. Many thanks to our partners at the Farmington Valley Y - Brian Liss G’99 (Executive Director) and Scott Woodaman ‘09, G’12 (Board Member and college employee) for helping to bring learning to life for our Y students and volunteers. #SpringfieldCollegeYMCAPrograms #EmergingLeaders #OurFutureIsBright #Philanthropy #BeCauseY #YForAll #LearnLeadServe #FarmingtonValleyYMCA

Please help me “officially” welcome Ben to the team! 🌟 After a six-month interim appointment, I am pleased to share that Ben Morales ‘17, G’19, was hired as the Assistant Director of YMCA Relations at Springfield College. Ben brings a wealth of Y programming experiences, educational background in Student Affairs Administration/Physical Ed, passion for student engagement, and inspiring vision for the future. Over the past several years, Ben seamlessly transitioned from Y Club student leader to graduate assistant to interim/assistant director. Quickly garnering the trust and respect of students, Ben provides outstanding leadership to many of our Y Programs and serves as the lead adviser to the Y Club. His background with the college’s Admissions and Alumni Relations teams is highly valued as we aim to recruit Y leaders and support alumni in the transition from college to career. As we look toward the future of our SC/Y partnership, I am thrilled to have Ben on board to help bring our work to the next level. While his resume speaks volumes about his readiness for this new role, his character speaks even louder. Ben is kind to all, authentic, mission-driven, people-centered, fun, and hard working. We all know how important it is to surround yourself with “good people”, I feel honored to say, in the Y Office, I am surrounded by some of the very best staff and students (and always have been). #grateful #appreciative #excitedfor2020andbeyond

Changemakers initiate important things and make it happen. Loizza Aquino shared her story including this pivotal tweet and the moment her work + passion lifted off... “I wanna start a mental health movement lead by students from schools across the province, hit me up if you’re down to help me.” There is power in conversation. We appreciate the authentic journey and inspired leadership lessons that Loizza shared with our campus community. #ymca #mentalhealth #changemakers

A highlight video of #YMCA175...

What a week we had together in London for #YMCA175. Thanks to YMCA Europe for organising, YMCA England & Wales for hosting and of course all those who helped make this event a reality. Big shout out to the volunteers, ExCeL London and the fantastic video production team that put this and our daily recap videos together.

Explore. Discover. Learn. Springfield College staff and students explored London while in town to attend the #YMCA175. Together we visited Westminster Abbey which features two YMCA stained glass windows and St. Paul’s Cathedral, the final resting place of Sir George Williams (founder of the Y). We walked for miles and miles soaking in the rich history, diverse culture, beautiful architecture, stunning art, eclectic cuisine, bustling city scenes, and so much more. Each group that travels with the Y Office develops their own personality. This group was truly “friendly to all”, easy going and FUN to be around. #SpringfieldCollege #YMCA
