Social Responsibility

The Y has been listening and responding to our communities’ most critical social needs for 160 years. Whether developing skills or emotional well-being through education and training, welcoming and connecting diverse demographic populations through global services, or preventing chronic disease and building healthier communities through collaborations with policymakers, the Y fosters the care and respect all people need and deserve. Through the YMCA, 500,000 volunteers and thousands of donors, leaders and partners across the country are empowering millions of people in the U.S. and around the world to be healthy, confident, connected and secure.

Giving back and providing support to our neighbors through:

  • Social Services – Training, resources and support to empower our neighbors to make change, bridge gaps and overcome obstacles
  • Global Services – Support systems that welcome, celebrate, educate and connect diverse demographic populations in the U.S. and around the world
  • Volunteerism & Giving – Voluntary contributions that fund, lead and support the Y’s critical work
  • Advocacy – Collaborations with policy makers, community leaders and private and public organizations to develop youth, prevent chronic disease, and build healthier communities and encourage social responsibility
