The Y aims to improve the nation's health and well-being by providing programs and activities that promote wellness, reduce risk for disease and help others reclaim their health. These programs and everything else the Y does are in service of making us–our Ys and our communities–better. The result is a country that values health and communities that support healthy choices. The Y.™ For a better us.™
Community Integrated Health
Community integrated health is the effort to strengthen the linkages between traditional health care and community-based prevention strategies (like the YMCA's Diabetes Prevention Program) in order to help individuals prevent, delay, or live better with chronic conditions.
Serving families has always been at the heart of the Y. We are a place where they can find respite from social, economic and educational challenges, and learn how to overcome them. We have a fundamental desire to provide opportunities for every family to build stronger bonds, achieve greater work/life balance and become more engaged with their communities.
Health, Well-being & Fitness
Because we know that healthy lifestyles are achieved through nurturing mind, body and spirit, well-being and fitness at the Y goes beyond just working out. In addition to fitness facilities, we provide educational programs to promote healthier decisions, and offer a variety of programs that support physical, intellectual and spiritual strength.
Healthier Communities Initiatives
At the Y, we work with community leaders to make the healthy choice the easy choice in all of the places where people live, work, learn and play.
Sports & Recreation
We believe sports, fun and exploring new interests aren't just for the young. Along with improving health, whenever teamwork is involved, there's the added benefit of being connected to others. That's why you'll find a range of recreational activities at the Y. With something to offer everyone, there's no such thing as being too old to get in the game.
Safety Around Water
The program is designed to reach children at risk of drowning and teach them basic water safety skills to reduce their risk of drowning. It was piloted and tested by Ys and Y-USA over the course of three years.
