The Y is a nonprofit like no other. That’s because in 10,000 neighborhoods across the nation, we have the presence and partnerships to not just promise, but deliver positive change.

Youth Development

Empowering young people to reach their full potential

  • Provide a stimulating environment for preschool-age children to play and learn while developing the physical, verbal and social skills they’ll need to start school ready to succeed
  • Focus on holistically nurturing child development by providing a safe and healthy place to learn foundational skills, develop healthy, trusting relationships and build self-reliance
  • Help kids reach their full potential by providing free access to healthy snacks and meals during out-of-school time
  • Coordinate efforts to bridge the growing disconnect between young people and the great outdoors by creating meaningful connections to nature
  • Create an environment in which students can increase their political awareness and understanding while learning the meaning of social action through hands-on experience

Healthy Living

Improving individual and community well-being

  • Leverage the excitement and passion around recreational and competitive programming to create a healthy outlet for children to gain new skills, develop a sense of team and connect with positive role models
  • Bridge the gap in the delivery of swim lessons and water safety education in the U.S.—especially in underserved communities
  • Work with community leaders to make the healthy choice an easy choice in all places where people live, work, learn and play
  • Create a space where families can find respite from social, economic and educational challenges while learning how to overcome them
  • Strengthen the alliance between traditional health care and community-based prevention strategies in order to help individuals prevent, delay or live better with chronic conditions
  • Provide opportunities for every family to build stronger bonds, achieve greater work-life balance and become more engaged within their communities
  • Address critical gaps in health education

The Y has made a positive impact in my life because they actively provide opportunities to build a healthy spirit, mind and body for people of all ages.

Social Responsibility

Providing support and inspiring action in our communities

  • Responds to society’s most pressing needs by developing innovative, community-based solutions to help those in need to reach their full potential
  • Committed to inspiring a spirit of service by uniting individuals from all walks of life to participate in and work for positive social change
  • Help young people to develop cultural competencies for thriving in an increasingly globalized society, support newcomers’ integration into their local communities and to connect vulnerable populations around the world to life-changing resources and support
  • Organize grassroots efforts and influence public policy around a range of humanitarian issues including child welfare, education and public health
  • Invest in salaries and benefits for Y professionals to strengthen the local economy
  • Provides Y members with fun, convenient and rewarding ways to give back and support their neighbors through volunteerism

The Y has always been inherently community-centered and its impact has been felt for well over a century and a half now.
