The YMCA administrative and development staff have been working with Mitchell County Schools to develop an after school and summer camp program for Michell County children and youth. The YMCA and Mithchell County Schools, as co-applicants, recently submitted a grant proposal to the NC Department of Public Instuction to fund the project. Given that funding isn't cut due to the pandemic crisis, we should know if the project is funded by September or October 2020.
The YMCA is working with community leaders and stakeholders to place a YMCA facility in Mitchell County. Katie Willett is exploring building site or the renovation of an existing building for that purpose. In 2018 the YMCA and the Mitchell Wellness Initiative sponsored a community survey of what facilities and programs were needed in Mitchell County. More than1,300 people responded.
