The SLO County Y received a gift from Joan Sargen of $7,570 to support the training and development of the Y's emerging leaders. Through the gift, four staff (pictured) were able to participate in the Y's Principles and Practices national training in Portland, Oregon, a foundational staff training that focuses on the Y as a "Cause." The second area of focus will be the launch of an online series of child abuse prevention trainings, in partnership with YMCA of the USA. The San Luis Obispo County Y is part of the first cohorts of YMCA's in California to launch this new training program, as part of the Y's ongoing commitment to children's safety and health.
