Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Community Impact

Membership means more at the Y because we are more than treadmills and lap lanes. For 170 years, the Y has dedicated itself to transforming lives, for both members and vulnerable communities. Whether they’re inside branches or out in the neighborhoods, YMCA staff and programs move every community we serve toward greater social justice, diversity, equity, and inclusion.

At the YMCA, membership means more because every time someone new walks through our doors, they become part of a caring community.

The Y nurtures children of all backgrounds, provides access to healthy choices for those struggling to make ends meet, and connects seniors, people of color, and families at risk to programs and services that change the trajectory of their lives.

Our members build more than muscle. They build stronger bodies, minds, and communities every day.
