The generosity of others is at the core of the Y’s existence as a nonprofit. It is only through the support of our hundreds of thousands of volunteers and public and private donors that we are able to support and give back to the communities we engage.
Nurturing the potential of every child and teen
The Y believe that all kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve. Through the Y, youth today are cultivating the values, skills and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health and educational achievement. We believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for life. Because of the Y, more young people in neighborhoods around our community are taking a greater interest and making smarter life choices. At the Y, children and teens learn values and positive behaviors, and can explore their unique talents and interests helping them realize their potential. That makes for confident kids today and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.
