Youth Cancer Survivor Program

YOUTHSTRONG is designed to help youth and young adult cancer survivors regain their health and well-being before, during and after cancer treatments. This FREE year-long physical activity program will help transition cancer survivors into the next chapter of their health and wellness journey.

Cancer is a life-changing disease that takes a tremendous physical and emotional toll on those affected. Participants will work with Y Personal Trainers or Program Instructors to safely achieve their goals such as building muscle mass and strength; increasing flexibility and endurance; and improving confidence and self-esteem.

Children 6 months to 9 years:
Free year-long family membership
Free youth programs for the participant throughout the year

Children 10-18 years:
Free year-long family membership
24 one-hour sessions with a Personal Trainer

By focusing on the whole person and not the disease, YOUTHSTRONG is helping people move beyond cancer in spirit, mind, and body.

Criteria for Participation

Anyone from 6 months to 18 years of age who is currently going through cancer treatment or has gone through some form of cancer treatment (i.e. surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, etc.) in the past that wants to regain their health and well-being. A medical clearance form from a medical professional is required to begin the program.
