Youth Development

Hip-Hop-Dance-Camp-282x300Nurturing the potential of every child and teen.
We believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for life. Because of the Y, more young people in neighborhoods around the nation are taking a greater interest in learning and making smarter life choices. At the Y, children and teens learn values and positive behaviors, and can explore their unique talents and interests, helping them realize their potential. That makes for confident kids today and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.

Healthy Living

Improving the community’s health and well-being.
Being healthy means more than simply being physically active. It’s about maintaining a balance body, mind and spirit. The Y is a place where you can work toward that balance by challenging yourself to learn a new skill or hobby, fostering connections with friends through our lifelong learning programs, or bringing your loved ones closer together through our many family centered activities. At the Y, it’s not about the activity you choose as much as it is about the benefits of living healthier on the inside as well as the outside.

Giving back and providing support to our neighbors.
We know that when we work as one, we move people and communities forward. That’s why we are committed to providing support to our neighbors and opportunities for kids, adults and families to give, join in or advocate in the name of stronger communities. Through the Y, volunteers and donors, leaders and partners across our community are empowering people of all walks of life to be healthy, confident, connected, and secure.
