To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
At the Y, strengthening community is our cause. Every day, the Y works side by side with its neighbors to ensure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow, and thrive.
One Association, Inclusion, Philanthropy, Volunteers and Values
Caring, Honesty, Respect, Responsibility and Faith
The values that guide us unite us. All YMCA programs for kids, teens, adults and families are built upon our core values.
Today, more than 40 languages are spoken in YMCAs across the United States. But no matter which language is spoken, all communicate our core values of caring, honesty, respect, responsibility and faith, just as they do in each of the 120 countries around the world where people can find a Y to call their own.
