Project Community Pride

A Youth & Teen Counseling and Support Program

Project Community Pride of the Madison Area YMCA is an important extension of youth development services for children, teens and their families throughout the Madison Area YMCA’s service area that was made possible through the collaboration of community leaders and a new partnership with the municipalities and School Districts of the Chathams, Florham Park and Madison. The partnership signifies a major step forward in furthering the Y’s commitment to youth development.

The COVID-19 pandemic has added layers of stress and continually evolving routines. Project Community Pride is currently offering telehealth appointments for clients and is ready to support children, teens and families who need additional assistance and resources during these challenging times.
