The YMCA is the nation's leading nonprofit committed to helping people and communities to learn, grow, and thrive through youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility.

Today, the YMCA engages in more than 10,000 neighborhoods across the U.S. Our contributions are both far-reaching and intimate - from influencing our nation's culture during times of profound social change to the individual support we provide a child learning to read.

By nurturing the potential of every child and teen, improving the nation's health and well-being, and supporting and serving our neighbors, the Y ensures that everyone has the opportunity to become healthier, more confident, connected, and secure.
