The Y unveils new strategy to further community impact
Dear Y Friends,
The Y is a leading non-profit commited to strengthening community. In 2010, the YMCA of the USA unveiled a new brand strategy to increase understanding of the impact that YMCAs make in the communities they serve. The YMCA addresses many of the challenges facing families and communities today. The new strategy and framework will help us to better communicate our mission, our cause and the positive impact of the Y in our communities.
Our mission remains the same as it has for 85 years: we are a nonprofit, charitable organization that is part of a worldwide association based on Christian principles, inclusive of all people, dedicated to fostering opportunities for all individuals, families and communities through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
At the Y, strengthening the foundations of community is our cause. We will continue to engage members, volunteers, donors, staff, and others in:
- Youth Development: Nurturing the potential of every child and teen
- Healthy Living: Improving the nation's health and well-being
- Social Responsibility: Giving back and providing support to our neighbors
The Y is a unique nonprofit. For over 85 years, we have promised and provided lasting personal and social change. We are dedicated to enriching the lives of kids, families and adults of all ages.
The Y is made up of people of all ages and from every walk of life, all working side-by-side to ensure everyone, regardless of gender, income or background, has the opportunity to live life to the fullest. We are personally committed to understanding what our neighborhoods need. We exist to bring communities closer together.
Stay tuned! This is an exciting time for the Y movement: together, we continue to strengthen the foundations of our communities we serve!
