As the U.S. Organizing Agency for Shift+, the new alcohol prevention initiative of the Paso del Norte Health Foundation, we are working with a diverse group of community partners who are committed to reducing underage drinking and binge drinking in all ages.

We are excited about our Shift+ Advocacy Training Program!

We’re working with partners who:

  • are motivated to promote effective & evidence-based alcohol prevention strategies
  • support local and statewide efforts to change the role of alcohol in our culture in ways that protect our youth and promote healthy communities
  • have the capacity to engage with policymakers and community leaders
  • represent a diverse group of people, organizations, & communities

If you're interested in becoming involved in regional alcohol policy advocacy work, we'd like to hear from you!

LiveStrong at The YMCA

LIVESTRONG at the YMCA is a twelve-week, small group program designed for adult cancer survivors. This program fulfills the important need of supporting the increasing number of cancer survivors who find themselves in the transitional period between completing their cancer treatment and the shift to feeling physically and emotionally strong enough to attempt to return to their normal life or their "new normal". The program is conducted outside of medical facilities to emphasize that LIVESTRONG at the YMCA is about health, not disease.

The Y is committed to providing programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all. We make every effort to ensure that no one is turned away due to inability to pay. Click to read more about our financial assistance.
