We believe that all kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they really are and what they can achieve. That's why, through the Y, millions of youth today are cultivating the values, skills and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health and educational achievement.
The Y is a leading voice on health and well-being. With a mission centered on balance, the Y brings families closer together, encourages good health and fosters connections through fitness, sports, fun and shared interests. As a result, millions of youth, adults and families are receiving the support, guidance and resources needed to reach their health goals.
At the Y, we foster the care and respect all people need and deserve. That can mean developing skills and emotional balance through education and training, welcoming and connecting diverse populations through global services or preventing chronic disease and building healthier communities through collaborations with policymakers.
