You are part of a cause

At the Y, strengthening community is our cause. Through our focus on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, we embrace and nurture the promise that lies in all of us. The Y gives children, families and individuals the support and resources they need to be more healthy, confident, connected and secure.

Each year, 22 million people of all ages and from all walks of life turn to one of the more than 2,700 YMCAs in the U.S. for programs that nurture the potential of children and teens, improve health and well-being and empower people to give back and support neighbors. In 10,000 communities nationwide, our child care, education and leadership, athletic and camp programs give
kids safe, nurturing environments that help them realize who they are and what they can achieve. Our family time, fitness, sports, recreation and group interest programs improve health and well-being. And our social and global services, volunteerism, giving and advocacy programs enable people to develop the skills, abilities and mindsets they need to live their best lives.

As a nonprofit, this is our commitment. We count on the generosity of our members and partners to help us continue our vital work.
