What is the YMCA’s Purpose

If you have a minute… The Y is the leading nonprofit committed
to strengthening community by connecting all people to their
potential, purpose, and each other.

Working locally, we focus on
empowering young people, improving health and well-being,
and inspiring action in and across communities.

If you have a little bit longer…
By bringing together people
from different backgrounds, perspectives, and generations,
we ensure that we all have access to the opportunities,
relationships and resources necessary to learn, grow
and thrive.
