Harry H. Shearouse has been selected to serve as the finance chairman for the State YMCA of Georgia in Effingham County/Springfield for 2009.
The finance drive is currently under way to support the State YMCA program in middle and high schools in Georgia through Hi-Y, Tri-Hi-Y and Coed “Y” Clubs.
“Y” Clubs are leadership development, service-oriented faith-based school clubs for sixth through 12th grade students statewide. These “Y” Club members learn by doing. They conduct monthly school and community service projects and participate in a variety of conferences geared towards government education and Christian character.
The State YMCA of Georgia, Inc. was chartered in 1929 to develop leadership skills and a sense of moral and civic responsibility in middle school and high school students throughout the state. Youth-in-government programs, leadership training and character education initiatives based on Christian principles are offered at the district and statewide levels to complement the work of service-oriented, school-based “Y” Clubs.
