The YMCA 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. 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.
We do more than teach youth how to swim or coach sports. We are here to ensure the children and teens in our communities reach their full potential—physically, mentally, and socially.
Maintaining a balanced spirit, mind, and body is just as important as being physically active. Our classes, programs, fitness challenges, personal training, and more helps you challenge yourself and become the healthiest you possible.
The generosity of others is at the core of the Y’s existence as a nonprofit. It is only through the support of our volunteers and public and private donors that we are able to support and give back to our communities.
