Mission

Our Mission: to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind, and body for all. Our Cause: At the Y, strengthening community is our cause. We believe that lasting personal and social change can only come about when we all work together to invest in our kids, our health, and our neighbors. That's why we focus our work in three areas: *Youth Development-Nurturing the potential of every child and teen. *Healthy Living-Improving the nation's health and well-being. *Social Responsibility-Giving back and providing support to our neighbors.

About

Youth Development: Nurturing the potential of every child and teen: The YMCA believes in youth development: nurturing the potential of every child and teen. 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. The Y believes the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for life. Because of the Y, more young people in neighborhoods around the nation are taking a greater interest in learning and making smarter life choices. Key program areas in which that takes place at the Y are: Child Care: safe, nurturing environment for children to learn, grow and develop social skills. Education & Leadership: Knowledge, character development, guidance and encouragement to help youth develop and realize their potential. Swim, Sports & Play: Positive, fun activities that build athletic, social and interpersonal skills. Camp: exciting, safe community for young people to explore the outdoors, build self-esteem, develop interpersonal skills and make lasting friendships and memories. Youth development in the Y includes leadership development programs during out of school time (such as Beacons School Success Centers and Y Leaders Club), youth civic engagement (such as Youth in Government and Model United Nations), post-secondary educational prep (such as Achievers), competitive swimming and sports, recreation activities; youth swim lessons, day and overnight camps and specialty camp programs. In 2018, more than 16,300 kids went to Day Camp to learn, play, make friends and connect with caring counselors. Moreover, 10,850 kids participated in sports programs and almost 10,500 adults, teens and youth took part in overnight camping. Specific programs in youth development also include early childhood childcare, school-age childcare and drop-in childcare at our membership locations. Most childcare sites are in YMCA branches, schools, churches and other non-YMCA locations. In 2018, more than 26,750 kids in Y childcare learned the core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.
