The Y. For a better us.
The Y is us. You, me, your family, your neighbors, your coworkers, your children’s schoolmates. Together, we laugh, learn, sweat, swim, socialize, find the support we need and share that support with others in need. And it works, because we do it together. As a locally based nonprofit organization, our number one priority is to serve this community.
Across the United States, more than 500,000 business leaders, community advocates, parents, teens and individuals who want to give back and support their neighbors volunteer at the Y. Come be a part of it.
Whether it's a healthy living event like our Traveling Y Series, or a gathering of friends and family at Dinner with Santa, experience how the Y strengthens community through special events that bring about meaningful connection.
The Y's work for a better us keeps us motivated to share the good news about the things happening that contribute to our promise to strengthen community, and keeps our biggest fans in the loop!
