Van Bramer Supports YMCA Youth League
Councilmember Jimmy Van Bramer kicked off the first day of the Long Island City YMCA Youth League season at Queensbridge Park. Van Bramer spoke about the importance of kids participating in athletic, educational and cultural programs that the YMCA provides. Van Bramer has allocated more than $100,000 in funding during the past two years, including more than $50,000 in the budget adopted this June for the coming year for these programs. “It has always been one of my top priorities to make sure our youth have a nurturing environment within the community, encouraging valuable lessons, including teamwork, and the importance of physical fitness. The YMCA Youth League provides young people with this opportunity,” Van Bramer said.
