Our Cause Defines Us
We know that lasting personal and social change comes about when we all work together. That’s why, at the Y, strengthening community is our cause. Every day, we work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.
When you belong to the YMCA, you're joining a diverse community of people committed to youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. We believe all youth are of promise. We foster relationships with each other to deepen our connection and commitment to our goals. We believe in the transformative power of community, and reaching out to give a neighbor a helping hand makes us all stronger.

Diversity & Inclusion
For more than 165 years, the Y has played a central role in knitting together the vibrant fabric of America. There have been times of peace and times of conflict, times of unity and times of discord. Through it all, our democracy has persevered, and the Y has been a safe, welcoming place for people from all backgrounds.
