501(c) Agencies Trust member YWCA York (PA) was in the news this week after their program for discouraging underage drinking earned a state grant for the fourth year in a row.

The York Dispatch has more details.

A YWCA York program that aims to keep York City teens from trying alcohol received $32,000 in funding Thursday from state officials.

The money will be used to expand the YWCA’s Lifeskills program, Jean Treuhart, its executive director, said during a Thursday news conference in front of the YWCA.

Treuhart was joined by state and local officials, as well as a group of students who have been through the program. Each of the students wore T-shirts with the words “underage drinking is a form of not thinking” printed on their backs.

“Whether you know it or not, other students look up to you,” Rep. Kevin Schreiber, D-York City, told the students.
