Immigration attorney Christopher Stender has been a successful lawyer in the California region for nearly a decade. Outside of his work as an immigration attorney, Christopher Stender enjoys participating in YMCA activities with his daughter.

The YMCA has a strong focus on youth development, healthy family relationships, and keeping children active and involved, and its programs support these values. The YMCA hosts an innumerable amount of member programs and events, often varying by location and depending on local activities available. One common program offered nationwide is the Let’s Move! Outside initiative, which was begun by First Lady Michelle Obama.

Let’s Move! Outside is meant to encourage children and young adults to take advantage of nature and outdoor activities. The YMCA partners with the Department of the Interior for the initiative, and hopes to inspire children to do service projects as well as play outdoors more. To support this, the YMCA offers a host of events and services, such as summer programs and free national park coverage for youth. To find an event near you, visit www.ymca.net/letsmoveoutside/.
