Walden University and YMCA Collaborate to Expand Educational Opportunities


Walden University

Walden University and the YMCA of the USA have formed a collaboration to introduce potentially 750,000 people to the advantages of a Walden education. The YMCA will promote Walden’s convenient, state-of-the-art learning experience to its employees, volunteers, and their family members at more than 2,600 sites nationwide.
The YMCA will use various channels to inform employees and volunteers about the benefits of a Walden education, including the state-of-the-art learning experience, breadth of program offerings, expert faculty and commitment to social change. 
“We strengthen our organization from within,” said Deb Salls, YMCA of the USA training and leadership development specialist. “This collaboration with Walden gives our employees and volunteers a convenient format to earn a degree. The immediate benefit is that they can apply what they learn on the job, and the long-term benefit is that they can learn additional skills to advance their career at the YMCA.”
