Student Board

The Student Board is made up of representatives from each of the Y’s student programs. Together, these students work to create and maintain a dynamic and productive community of diverse student programs and serve as the voice of these programs on the YMCA Board of Governors.. 

Some Past events sponsored by the Student Board include:

  • Y Prom: EverybodY - The 3rd Annual YMCA Prom featured a 90s themed dance party and a spaghetti dinner.  Over 80 people were in attendance, and the student board raised over $700 to help raise money for the University YMCA's Committee Concerned For Human Dignity (CCHD) fund. View pictures on
  • Allen Hall Y Activity Day - All 12 Y student programs joined for an outreach day at Allen Hall.  Residents stopped by before and after lunch to learn more about the Y and its student programs. 
  • All Program Leadership Workshop - Over 60 student leaders from Y student programs took part in a leadership workshop hosted by the Student Board and the Illinois Leadership Center.  Students shared results of their DiSC style assessment and discussed ways to work more efficiently together.
