Joel Cortina, Regional Manager in Division 12, volunteers with the YMCA of the Greater Tri-Cities in Washington.  He serves as a positive role model as he instructs and leads a group of 8-14 children in different youth sport activities.  Each program lasts 7-8 weeks, and Joel usually volunteers two weeknights or Saturdays for the games and practices.

In honor of Joel’s volunteer work, the YMCA will receive a Gleason Grant from the Bright Horizons Foundation for Children for $250.

Any Bright Horizons employee or a group of employees who volunteers at least 20 hours a year with a qualified nonprofit organization* is eligible to apply for a Foundation grant. Larger grants are available in honor of those who volunteer more than 100 hours a year.

*Please see our Funding Guidelines for more information on eligible organizations.
