2017 Annual Campaign

You know that in Ashtabula County teens are often overlooked and often find their own ways to fill their time – much of it negative. You see that people are battling chronic disease and need help to fight. You are aware that services in more rural parts of the county are far and few between and that transportation is an issue. You feel strongly that everyone, regardless of age, income, or background deserves opportunities for youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility.

Summer 2017 Boating & Nature Programs

Canoeing, Kayaking, Sailing, Paddleboarding, Bird Watching, Wildflower and Trail Hikes are in full swing this summer. We are offering more opportunities than ever before to get out and enjoy the beauty of Ashtabula County's natural resources. Registration is required and available online or in person at the Y and financial assistance is available for any of these programs. All YMCA boating programs are partially funded by a grant form the ODNR Division of Parks and Watercraft.


Spirit of America 2017

Over the past 20 years, the Spirit of America Foundation has provided America’s premier youth boating education programs to tens of thousands of young people in 22 locations around the country. Since 2014, they have partnered with the YMCA to offer the program here in Ashtabula County. Once students earn their Ohio Boater Education Certificate, they will move on to learning, hands-on, how to safely and properly operate all kinds of watercraft including canoes and kayaks, powerboats, sailboats and jet skis.
