For Youth Development
We believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for life. Because of the Y, more young people in our own neighborhoods are taking a greater interest in learning and making smarter life choices. At the Y, children and teens learn values and positive behaviors, and can explore their unique talents and interests, helping them realize their potential. That makes for confident kids today and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.
For Healthy Living
Being healthy means more than simply being physically active. It’s about maintaining a balanced spirit, mind, and body. The Y is a place where you can work toward that balance by challenging yourself to learn a new skill or hobby, fostering connections with friends through our lifelong learning programs, or bringing your loved ones closer together through our many family-centered activities. At the Y, it’s not about the activity you choose as much as it is about the benefits of living healthier on the inside as well as the outside.
For Social Responsibility
The generosity of others is at the core of the Y’s existence as a nonprofit. It is only through the support of our thousands of volunteers and public and private donors that we are able to support and give back to our communities we engage.
