Our Focus & Core Values

The Y has three areas of focus.

Youth Development. All kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve. At the Y, our programs are designed to help kids cultivate values, skills, and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health and enhanced academic achievement.

Healthy Living. We believe that healthy people tend to be happy people. At the Y, we inspire total wellness in spirit, mind and body among kids, adults and seniors.

Social Responsibility. As we have for the past 140 years, we continue to listen and respond to the critical needs of our community, with a focus on the most vulnerable citizens and under-served populations.

At the Y, we infuse all that we do with four core values:

  • Caring
  • Honesty
  • Respect
  • Responsibility
