TOGETHER WE CAN BUILD A BETTER US
When you give to the Y, you make southeastern Virginia and northeastern North Carolina a better place to live.
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. So every tax-deductible dollar you donate directly affects all of us in the best possible way: through before- and after-school care, swim lessons, health & wellness for seniors, diabetes prevention, summer camps, teen leadership, family activities, senior social hours and, of course, scholarships that ensure our doors are always open for those most in need.
The Y nurtures the potential of every child and teen by supporting their unique development journey through holistic programming that includes swim lessons, child care, leadership development and more. From cradle to career, the Y provides all youth with the tools and resources they need to succeed in life.
The Y aims to improve our nation's health and well-being by providing programs and activities that promote wellness, reduce risk for disease and help others reclaim their health. We've already begun to move the mark to prevent diabetes and provide support for cancer survivors through the LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA program, and we're helping create communities that support healthy choices every day.
We know that when we work together, we move individuals, families and communities forward. The Y responds to society’s most pressing needs by developing innovative, community-based solutions to help those in need to reach their full potential. We are also committed to inspiring a spirit of service by uniting individuals from all walks of life to participate in and work for positive social change.
