Welcome to the Growing the Positive Youth & Family Calendar

  • Growing the Positive is a large collective of not-for-profit and municipal organizations that share the common purpose of serving children and families in Rye. This collective has come together to improve our coordination and planning and increase collaboration, in an effort to better address the needs of youth in our community. 

    As the name suggests, this Calendar includes programs, initiatives, and events that focus on youth and families, sponsored by the organizations that participate in this initiative. You can find out more about each individual organization in the Web Resources section, including contact information and website links. 

    This page and the attached calendar are just the first steps among many we will take as we continue “Growing the Positive.”


Growing the Positive Organizations

  • RyeACT (Rye Action for Children and Teens) is a coalition of local organizations and individuals committed to promoting long term health and wellness by inspiring youth, parents, and community leaders to foster healthy behaviors and reduce youth substance use.

    The Rye YMCA is a family-oriented community service organization which welcomes all people and promotes positive values through programs that build spirit, mind, and body.

    Rye Youth Council is an independent nonprofit organization that supports the social and emotional health and mental well-being of children, teens and young adults in our community. We do this by engaging, educating and empowering youth through interactive workshops, experiential learning and leadership opportunities, and classroom lessons in partnership with families, schools and community. RYC programs are created to improve the emotional strength children and families need to find balance and focus, excel through transitions, and become strong, independent and resilient individuals.
