Rep Your Region

Each year, the YMCA provides a platform for youth between the ages of 11 and 29 to demonstrate their talent and eccentricities – a space for youth to express themselves. Rep Your Region isn’t simply an opportunity for youth to come together to perform; it also encourages individuals from all age groups to unite for one evening embodying the YMCA core values of inclusiveness and respect.
