Helping Kids Flourish
At the Y, we believe that every child should have the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. Through our innovative swim and gym program, Project SOAR “Smith Opportunities for Activities and Recreation,” we partner with several local community agencies and schools to ensure that children in Joliet have the opportunity to learn to swim and enjoy recreation time at the Y.
Since the program’s launch in 2008, the Y has provided more than 10,000 free swim lessons for kids in Joliet. This program is made possible through the generosity of local businesses and grant funds.
