Classes are unique in that instructors are community residents who desire to share their
passions with other adults and in a community-oriented exchange.
“Neighbors Teaching Neighbors will enrich the local community by providing an
opportunity for community members to learn new skills, form valuable
relationships and serve as a platform for continued community
collaboration,” said Mike Soika, vice president of Social

excellent opportunity to expand our offerings and embrace the talents
of the local community, and it demonstrates the Y’s commitment to
embracing and serving the changing needs of our community.”
