Bridging Communities for Generations to Come

Atherton Y Service Club

After 26 years waiting for a new charter, on February 2, 2020 the official charter signing of the Atherton Y Service Club was made. In correspondence with the Atherton YMCA Branch, its service club was created for student volunteers who wish to continue serving their local and international communities after obtaining their college degrees and joining the workforce.

Our organization stands to cultivate fellowship and to support projects that resonate with the values of the YMCA. Each member has a specific connection to the Atherton YMCA and how they began to grow through the Y. Our collection of photos below will highlight some of our members and explain how their Atherton Y story began.

Through the Annual Campaign, our goal as a service club is $2500. We are pursuing this goal because we believe in the programs of the Atherton YMCA. Going through these programs ourselves, we witnessed our very own growth and its impact on us to continue serving the world and to bridge every community for generations to come. With your support, we will make sure that these programs will serve all of the communities within Hawaii and to connect bridges internationally as well. Thank you for visiting!

Meet Sharon, who shares a long time history with Atherton since 1966 and holds a dual membership with Kaimuki. Over the years, she held staff and volunteer positions with the Y. She is glad to call the Y her home.


Meet Cassidy, Executive Director at Atherton Y! He struggled with anxiety and depression through high school and barely graduated. With the Y, he found his passions, strengths, and even himself again. Cass is now pursuing his Masters in Public Admin.


Meet Mary, our President! Mary’s been involved with the Atherton Y since she was a college camper. Through the Y, Mary found her passion to serve underrepresented communities across the state and now holds a B.S in Human Development & Family Studies.


Meet Nainoa, our Treasurer. Nainoa has worked, volunteered and currently serves on the Board of Managers for the Atherton Y. He holds a Bachelors degree in Family Resources, a Masters degree in social work and is a Licensed Social Worker in Hawaii.

Meet Cuong, our Secretary! Cuong has been a volunteer with the Atherton YMCA since his freshmen year of college. Because of the Y, he changed his major to Global Environmental Science and pursued environmental sustainability and coastal stewardship.
