Sculptural welding program funded by YMCA

-A A +A

Youth may participate in new sculptural welding arts program at the Española YMCA Teen Center thanks to a $5,000 grant from the Presbytery of Santa Fe.
Sculptural welding had been a favorite of the teens, according to Center Director Ben Sandoval, but the volunteer who lent his equipment found it too difficult to haul it to the Center.
The program had been defunct for the past 18 months, but this grant will enable the purchase of a welder, safety equipment and supplies, Sandoval said.
The grant was made by the Presbytery of Santa Fe on a motion of the Mission in the North Committee and comes on behalf of the whole Presbyterian Church in the United States.  
Regional Presbyter Clerk Sally Watson said these grants are very limited in number and are awarded to proposals which show the greatest possibility of success. “We certainly have every hope this will help your organization in its important ministry,” she said.
The funds will also be used to support other cultural arts programs offered at the Center, including the diorama scale-model building and the woodworking class
The Española YMCA Teen Center opened in 2007 and is administered by The Family YMCA under an operating contract with the City of Española.
