Toni Roberts joined the Ankeny YMCA team as a Welcome Center staff member in January of 2014. Most recently, she has served as our Youth Development Coordinator since July 2015.
“I feel my biggest accomplishment in this role has been taking the position from a very narrow scope and widening it,” Toni says of her position at the Ankeny Y. In addition to making Child Watch a safe and fun place for kids to be while their parents use the facility, Toni wanted to “help implement changes that really impact our community’s youth. Some of the major changes I helped bring about were offering Learning Centers in the evenings as well as planning and executing our Saturday Night Live program.”
“Working at the YMCA has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made,” Toni says. “I was new to the community, and developing relationships with its members has made Ankeny really feel like home. The people here are what made me so passionate about my role.”
With April 1 being Toni’s last day at the Y, please join us in thanking her for making a difference!
