The San Luis Obispo County YMCA received a donation of $5,000 from Pacific Gas and Electric Company to support the Y’s Youth Institute program in Paso Robles this summer.
The Y’s Summer Youth Institute is an intensive program that uses technology as a mechanism for promoting positive youth development and enhancing the academic success of low-income, culturally diverse teens.
PG&E’s gift helped to ensure that no youth was turned away from the YMCA Paso Robles Youth Institute due to inability to pay.
“We’re pleased to support the YMCA and its Summer Youth Institute because they benefit our community in so many ways – not only by providing tremendous opportunities for our young people, but also because the program mirrors PG&E values of education, community partnership and cultural diversity,” said PG&E public affairs representative Eric Daniels.
