Community

The YMCA of Austin exists to strengthen the foundations of our community through Youth Development, Healthy Living and Social Responsibility. 

We do it by teaching kids new skills that build self-confidence, character values and leadership. We do it by helping adults and families lead healthy lifestyles. We do it by connecting older adults to an active support network. We do it by providing outlets to give back to those in need an volunteer your time. People engage with the Y on one level, but they soon find a deeper meaning to their activities and a connection to those around them. Ultimately, at its highest form, they feel compelled to volunteer, to give back and help others strengthen the entire community.

Here are just a few of the YMCA programs helping to strengthen the greater Austin area:
