The Westfield Area Y Achievers is a mentoring and leadership program serving Union County high school students. Achievers are encouraged to develop to their fullest potential through community partnerships and leadership development programs. Achievers benefit from mentoring, college prep, tutoring and community service programs available a little or no cost thanks to the continued support of our community. 

The Achievers program is funded in large part by the Annual Banquet.  Funds raised by the banquet go directly to the program and scholarship, enabling youth to participate for little or no cost.  Your support, whether by attending the banquet, placing a journal ad by Friday, May 19th or serving as an Adult Achiever will have a meaningful and lasting impact on one of your neighbors… right here in our community.
