Welcome Week - South Sound YMCA

Welcome Week

We believe our communities are stronger when everyone feels welcome and we work together for the common good. Welcoming Week celebrates the growing movement of communities that fully embrace newcomer immigrants and their contributions to the social fabric of our country.

Created by YMCA of the USA’s (Y-USA) national partner Welcoming America, Welcoming Week brings together immigrants and US-born residents through community-based events. These events foster cross-cultural understanding and help to raise awareness of the benefits of welcoming everyone.

Welcome Week takes places from September 10th – 19th. Check out our calendar of events to participate!
