Meet Kate - Active Older Adult Program Director at the Y!

Meet Kate Yates, our new Active Older Adult Program Director for the YMCA of the Fox Cities.

Hi, I'm Kate. I moved from Colorado to Wisconsin in May, where I spent 7 years facilitating programming and activities for adults ages 55+. Before that, my background in therapeutic recreation gave me the opportunity to work with a diverse population of people who represented a large range of ages and abilities. My passion has always been providing resources and opportunities that enrich the lives of adults in the community, and I am very excited to be here with the Y. I truly believe that as we approach retirement, it opens opportunities for new hobbies, fitness schedules, travel options, friends and new adventures. A time for adults to discover, explore and focus on their own quality of life. With this group representing a wide range of interests and abilities, it’s my mission to provide a well-rounded curriculum of opportunities and events for adults throughout the Fox Cities.

While visiting family on Doty Island, I grew up swimming at the Neenah-Menasha YMCA where I now have an office. I moved to Neenah with my husband and three dogs and look forward to more time with family and trips to the family cottage up north.

Many of our Active Older Adult opportunities have diminished through the pandemic, but we are looking forward to growing this program again! Please do not hesitate to reach out with ideas and/or questions you may have: 920-886-2105;

I look forward to working with our community and can't wait to meet you!
