The Intercollegiate YMCA Center exists to connect college students to service opportunities in the Indianapolis area. We work with four universities totaling over 18,000 students. Our mission is to provide these students with experiences that will help them develop community awareness and responsibility as well as creating a well rounded world-conscious individual. This is accomplished by providing a variety of meaningful service opportunities throughout Indianapolis and in international service projects.
Our major programs include Alternative Break Programs, Leadership Series and experiences, Community Outreach Programs (public housing communities), and monthly service projects.
The Intercollegiate Center gives the YMCA of Greater Indianapolis an opportunity to fulfill its mission on college campuses by providing civic engagement opportunities. We develop cause driven leaders while connecting campus to community. This university-based YMCA allows the branch to develop the future leaders of our community. Students develop leadership skills as well as explore career and volunteer opportunities for their future.
