How We Help
NURTURING THE POTENTIAL OF TODAY’S YOUTH
At the Y, we don’t just teach swimming lessons or coach soccer: We ensure that the nine million children and teens in our programs reach their full potential by helping them grow—physically, mentally and socially—from young children into engaged, active members of their communities.
Y programs support youth development from cradle to career in thousands of communities across the country, building strong kids and strong futures for us all.
LEADING THE WAY TO HEALTHY LIVING
More than 65 million people are living healthier lives with help from the Y.
The Y is more than a place to get physically active; it’s a driving force behind living a healthy and full life. We work with communities to create community gardens, ensure that farmers markets are accessible, provide nutrition counseling, help children have a safe route to school and so much more.
SUPPORTING OUR NEIGHBORS
Individuals in 10,000 communities nationwide are living better with help from social service programs at the Y.
As one of the nation’s leading nonprofit organizations we see neighbors helping neighbors every day. From providing food, supplies and counseling when disaster strikes, to establishing recycling and sustainability programs, every effort is welcome and makes a difference.
