Fremont/Newark YMCA hires new executive director
Fremont/Newark YMCA is proud to announce and welcome Julie Kurtz as the new Executive Director. Julie will be responsible for the overall management of programming and service delivery for youth, adults and seniors at the YMCA in the Tri-City region.
Julie Kurtz joins the Y team coming from a Deputy Director position at FIRST 5 Santa Clara and prior to that as the Deputy Director at Kidango. Julie's 20 year career expands across the fields of Education, Mental Health, Early Intervention and Health and Wellness. Over the past 20 years, her commitment is to social justice, social equity and providing services that are key to the Y including Social Responsibility, Youth Services and Healthy Living.
Her goal at the Y is to come in and assess the current service programming, determine programmatic needs and seek ways to grow and expand services that are most needed in the community of Union City, Newark and Fremont.
Kurtz says, "It is all about relationships. My number one goal is to build relationships with our members, community partners, donors and to build together on the strengths we already have." Since Julie is new, she states it is imperative she meet as many key partners in the community. That is why she is hosting the following "Meet and Greet Sessions at the Y" located at 41811 Blacow Road in Fremont. Come join Julie to provide feedback, get to know her and learn more about the Y. Who knows, you may build a connection that will change lives.
