Drew Master has been involved with the Y since 2007, he was hired at the Scottsdale Y to run Summer Camps and an off-site After-school program. He now serves as the Sports Coordinator at the Desert Foothills Family Y and he loves being able to help young people learn and grow as they participate in sports, after-school and summer programs. He has been at the Desert Foothills branch since it opened its doors, and he has become a valued member of the team because of his dedication and commitment to improving the lives of those in his community.

Drew likes that the Y staff and members are his extended family. He says he loves the relationships that he has been able to forge with members and fellow employees. Being at the Y has also allowed him to see children improve their sports ability and grow as individuals, he has watched as four-year-old participants mature into eleven-year-old pre-teen athletes. Watching the kids enjoy playing sports is his favorite thing to do. He says that being able to see a kid make their first basket in a basketball game and see a huge smile come across his face is definitely the best part of his job. Drew grew up in sports and he knows how much it meant to him so he knows the impact that it has in a child’s life. He believes they are making memories they will cherish forever and he says that seeing it firsthand is just awesome!
