Youth in Motion

Started in October 2015, Youth in Motion partners with Maine Medical Center's Countdown to a Healthy ME Program to get over weight youth excited about being physically active.  Using the three dimensions of health and well-being for youth (relationships, accomplishments, belonging), the Y matches youth with Y mentors who build relationships and excite them about being physically active. This is a free 12 week program that includes a 12 week family membership. Youth meet with their mentor once a week for an hour.
