In a multitude of ways, our lives are touched by the three things that make the YMCA community so strong: youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.

Y Stories bring us together

By listening to each other’s ymca stories, we’re able to catch a glimpse of the hope, strength and determination of our community. These stories are just a few of why the Y means so much to us, our families and friends.

Our members have some great stories, and we want to share them with you!

This page is devoted to sharing the interesting and inspiring life experiences of our members. We’re sure there are many stories out there, so we hope you’ll fill us in. And please consider the many ways you can join us in helping to make a positive impact in the community. Watch the videos below to see how the YMCA has impacted communities everywhere.
