From YMCA executives to volunteer leadership, everyone here is passionate about making Greater Indianapolis a better, healthier place.

We know that lasting personal and social change comes about when we all work together.

That’s why at the Y, strengthening community through our leadership roles is our cause.  Every day, we work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.

Join the YMCA today so you can learn, grow and thrive.
