Why Choose YMCA Programs?
Many organizations offer programs as an end to themselves, but the YMCA offers programs as a vehivle to deliver our unique mission of putting Christian principles into practice to build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all. The goal of YMCA programs is to help enrich lives and teach people how to grow spiritually, mentally and physically. To accomplish this, we address the following seven specific objectives:

  • grow personally/develop self-esteem
  • teach values/develop character
  • improve personal & family relationships/support families
  • appreciate diversity/reflect community
  • become better leaders/promote leadership
  • develop skills/build live skills
  • have fun!/enjoy life!
