At our Y, strengthening community is our cause. Every day, we work side by side with our members, volunteers, and other organizations to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.
What We Do:
Our Y makes accessible the support and opportunities that empower people and communities to grow. With a focus on youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility, our Y nurtures the potential of every youth and teen, improves our community’s health and well-being, and provides opportunities to give back and support our neighbors.
How We Do It:
There is no other nonprofit quite like the Y. That’s because in 10,000 neighborhoods across the nation, we have the presence and partnerships to not just promise, but to deliver positive change.
OUR WORK IS ALIGNED AROUND THREE AREAS OF FOCUS
Youth Development – We are committed to nurturing the potential of every child and teen. We believe all kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve. Each year, nearly 6,000 kids come to our Y to have some fun. While they’re here, they are also developing character-building values, discovering new skills, and forming relationships within our community.
Healthy Living – Our goal is to improve the community’s health and well-being. Our Y brings families closer together, encourages good health, and fosters connections through fitness, sports, fun and shared interests. We offer programs for everyone to promote fun, fitness and family unity.
Social Responsibility – We believe in giving back and providing support to our neighbors. Since 1954, we have been listening and responding to the needs of our community through education, training, motivation or support. Whether it’s building a healthier community at home, or reaching across borders through our World Service Initiative, we are there to help others become healthier, more confident, connected and secure.
