Zoe’s Kids Day Out is an extension of Zoe for President, an initiative to elect a one-year-old girl as our nation’s Commander in Chief…in 2064. The campaign highlights the potential the Y sees in all kids to grow up and change the world if they’re nurtured properly and supported along the way. Through Y programs like academic enrichment, mentorship, college readiness, job training and more, kids have the opportunity to grow, to succeed, and one day, maybe even become president. 

The Y is the nation’s leading nonprofit committed to strengthening communities through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.
