About the Y - The Y Way!

The YMCA is a membership organization-an association of people who come together for the common good. YMCAs have been at the heart of community life in neighborhoods and towns across the nation for over 150 years. Today, Ys work to meet the health and social service needs of 17.9 million men, women and children, making it the second largest not-for-profit community service organization in America. Around the world, the YMCA movement has grown into a fellowship of 30 million people involved in Ys in 122 countries.

A volunteer board sets policy for its executive, who manages the operation with staff and volunteer leaders. Ys meets local community needs through organized activities called programs. YMCA programs are a unique way to develop values and behavior that are consistent with our four core values: caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.

As longtime leaders in community-based wellness, Ys provide fitness areas for individual workouts and aerobics classes for group exercise, pools for water exercise and to teach swim lessons and gyms for sports programming. In its own way, every Y nurtures the healthy development of children and teens, strengthens families and makes its community a healthier, safer, better place to live.
