Welcoming Week 2017

Large group of multi-ethnic young people

September 15 – 24

We believe our communities are stronger when everyone feels welcome and we work together for the common good. Welcoming Week, taking place September 15 – 24, 2017, celebrates the growing movement of communities that fully embrace new Americans and their contributions to the social fabric of our country. It’s a chance for neighbors— both immigrants and U.S.-born residents—to get to know one another and celebrate what unites us as a community!

Visit any of our branch locations to learn more and participate in Welcoming Week 2017!




You can also participate virtually! During the month of September, take a moment to let your foreign-born neighbors know that they are welcome and appreciated in your community by filling out one of the sign templates below. Take a photo with your sign and share it on social media using the hashtag #WelcomingWeek and @YMCAMemphis.
