Recognizing the commitment of time and resources it takes to bring a delegation to the NAYDO Conference, we've designed other conference-like experiences targeted for program directors, support staff and volunteers. NAYDO Academy qualifies for Y-USA Leadership Development re-certification credit and CFRE credit.

NAYDO Academy  

In 2023, more Y staff and volunteers will attend NAYDO Academy than ever before. 

NAYDO Academy is a half-day annual support training. It is a virtual and in-person event, hosted by State Alliances of YMCAs

This training is for frontline, program and membership staff, admin and other staff, and branch leaders. Branch volunteers can be a target audience, also. Academies focus on why we have an annual campaign and each person’s role in making the campaign a success. Workshops are tailored to your needs. 

Attendees join in at a watch party site, so networking and idea sharing are part of the experience.
