Youth Development

Nuturing the potential of every child and teen.

We believe all kids have potential and should have the opportunity to discover who they are, express themselves, and be nurtured in all their possibility.

We provide programs in child care; education and leadership; swim, sports, and play; and camp that create safe, authentic, and positive relationships with well-trained and caring role models and that teach life skills and values, regardless of program or activity.

Healthy Living

Improving the nation’s health and well-being

We believe that everyone has the desire to be well and that well-being is best cultivated by providing supportive relationships and environments. We also believe that all people should have the opportunity to be well in spirit, mind, and body.

More than physical activity and healthy eating, YMCA healthy living encompasses a holistic approach to well-being that significantly enhances the lives of individuals, families, and communities.

We provide a welcoming, safe and supportive environment for all ages to become healthier and stay well in spirit, mind, and body. Through meaningful programs in family time; health, wellness, and fitness; sports and recreation; and group interests, the Y shares resources, expertise and support for the nation’s health and well-being.

Social Responsibility

Giving back and providing support to our neighbors

We believe that we have a duty to try to help where help is needed. We believe that with support, resources and guidance, people can improve their own lives and the lives of others. We believe we are part of a global community with global responsibilities. We believe that people want to help.

We provide social services for people facing considerable obstacles. We provide opportunities for international engagement and understanding. We provide opportunities for people to volunteer, engage, advocate and donate, and we provide a caring environment where people know they’re not alone.
