Wilkes University


Wellness Committee Teams Up with the YMCA

The Wellness Committee is pleased to share that we have engaged with the Wilkes-Barre YMCA to explore the possibility of exclusive programming offerings for Wilkes employees. 

In order to assess interest and ensure the right courses are offered at the right times, we invite all faculty and staff members to complete our YMCA Interest Survey by Wednesday, Sept. 4. 

With your feedback and sufficient interest, the committee will work with YMCA to create opportunities for fitness classes for Wilkes employees only. It is important to note that minimum numbers of participants will be required to sustain the offerings and schedules are subject to space availability provided by the YMCA. Please watch for future announcements with more details.  

The YMCA will also provide small group tours so our employees can get to know the facility and all program offerings included in the free membership available to all of our full-time employees. Tours will be held at noon each day from Monday, Sept, 9, through Friday, Sept. 13. All University faculty and staff are encouraged to take advantage of this unique opportunity to get to know the Y!  Since space at each tour is limited, please e-mail Teri Shovlin (teresita.shovlin@wilkes.edu) in the Human Resources department to confirm the date you would like to attend. 

Please watch for upcoming announcements about activities and events for the fall semester!
