For a Better Us
The YMCA exists to strengthen the foundations of our community through Youth Development, Healthy Living and Social Responsibility. We do this by teaching kids new skills to build self-confidence, character values and leadership. We do it by helping adults and families lead healthy lifestyles. We do it by connecting older adults to an active support network. We do it by providing outlets to give back to those in need by way of volunteering. People engage with the Y on one level, but they soon find a deeper meaning to their activities and a connection to those around them. Ultimately, at its highest form, they feel compelled to volunteer, give back and help others strengthen the entire community.
