Become a Y Street Member

Hello everyone! My name is Lydia and I’m a sophomore at Hopewell High School. I’ve been a part of Y Street for two years now, and I’ve been a part of the Y Street Leadership Team for one year.

Y Street has been an amazing experience for me so far! It has allowed me to meet new people and make a change within my school. It has also given me a lot of great opportunities like speaking with Key Decision Makers in my community. Our campaigns are Share The Air and Rev Your Bev. Both campaigns have impacted me but Rev Your Bev has impacted me the most. Rev Your Bev has encouraged me to drink more water and I feel amazing. I feel more energized and happier. I have made videos on ways to make flavored water and collected support cards and surveys for the campaign.

Y Street is a great opportunity to make a change within your school and community. There are so many benefits like participating in events and activities, earning rewards, building new relationships, and making a positive change in your school and community! And, Y Street looks great on college applications!! So if you’re interested in joining, head to ystreet.org to complete your application today. It’s very easy and simple. If you want to come back, log into your Y Street member account on the Y Street website and sign up for your school’s 2021 Training Event.
