California Congressman Adam Schiff (CA 28th) will be honored by local YMCAs May 26 in recognition of his ongoing and exemplary support of the nonprofit sector and of Los Angeles YMCAs within the 28th district.

 

On Feb. 25, Schiff was presented with the YMCA Congressional Champion award in a reception on Capitol Hill during the YMCA of the USA’s 22nd annual National Advocacy Days in Washington, D.C. At the conference, more than 300 YMCA leaders from across the country visited members of Congress to discuss the vital role that YMCAs play in communities nationwide and to urge them to advance policies that support nurturing youth, promoting healthy living and fostering social responsibility.

 

Schiff was honored for his leadership role in protecting our nation’s youth through his co-sponsorship of the Child Protection Improvements Act.

 

Honoring him May 26 for his ongoing support of local YMCAs and other Los Angeles-area non-profits will be representatives from the Burbank Community YMCA, YMCA of the Foothills, YMCA of Glendale and the YMCA of Metropolitan Los Angeles.

“The YMCA is committed to building strong families and community and relies on the generosity of those in our communities to further our mission and to continue to provide needed services,” said JC Holt, president & CEO, Burbank Community YMCA. “We are fortunate to have the support of elected officials like Congressman Adam Schiff who shares our commitment.”

 

Commented Schiff, “It was a tremendous honor to receive the Congressional Champion Award from YMCA of the USA in Washington, D.C. in February and I am equally honored to receive this recognition from Los Angeles-area YMCAs. These local Ys provide vital services that significantly improve the quality of life for so many of my constituents—combining good exercise, healthy living and character building. I am so proud of the work they do and will continue to support local YMCA initiatives as well as advocate on the Y’s behalf in our nation’s Capital.”

 

About the California YMCA Youth & Government Program

The California YMCA Youth and Government program is now in its 68th year. Its mission is to build values-based leadership and civic engagement in California’s youth to strengthen our democracy. Since 1948, the program has provided outstanding educational and social experiences for more than 70,000 middle and high school youth. As part of the program, students are afforded a unique opportunity to craft and present a legislative bill that receives serious consideration by California state legislators to move forward through the State Assembly and perhaps become actual state law. Each February, more than 100 delegations from across the state travel to Sacramento to compete.
