A New Brand in Our Community
You may have heard that YMCAs across the nation have adopted a NEW BRAND. To better communicate who we are and what we do, the Y is reintroducing itself to America!
You’ll begin to see changes at your local Y too. New logos, new messages, and a new energy will begin to redefine YMCAs everywhere.
We hope you’ll share in our excitement as we introduce our new brand to you through this website; better yet, we hope you feel a deeper connection with your local YMCA once you get to know us all over again!
We're Reintroducing Ourselves.
At the Y, strengthening the foundations of community is our cause. The Y serves three crucial areas of focus to help individuals, families and communities to grow and thrive.
The Y is for Youth Development. We believe that all kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve. That’s why, through the Y, millions of youth are cultivating values, skills and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health and educational achievement.
The Y is for Healthy Living. The nation’s health and well-being is a top priority. The Y brings families 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 achieve greater health and well-being for their spirit, mind, and body.
The Y is for Social Responsibility. The Y strives to give back and provide support to our neighbors. We have been listening and responding to our communities’ most critical needs for 160 years. Whether developing skills or emotional well-being, welcoming and connecting diverse populations or advocating for healthier communities, the Y fosters the care and respect all people need and deserve. Through the Y, thousands of volunteers, donors, leaders and partners are empowering millions of people, and the communities in which they live, to be healthy, confident, connected and secure.
