The Y. For a Better Us.
The Y is a cause-driven organization that is for youth development, for healthy living, and for social responsibility. That’s because a strong community can only be achieved when we invest in our kids, our health, and our neighbors.
Our Mission: The YMCA of the East Valley is an association of people of all ages, ethnic groups, and religious affiliations founded on Christian principles and dedicated to building strong kids, strong families, and strong communities through programs that develop spirit, mind, and body.
Nurturing the potential of every child and teen.
The Y nurtures the potential of every child and teen by supporting their unique youth development journey through comprehensive programming. From cradle to career, the Y provides all youth with the tools and resources they need to succeed in life.
Improving our nation’s health and well-being.
The Y provides 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 Y’s and our communities – better. The result is a country that values health and communities that support healthy choices.
Giving back and providing support to our neighbors.
We know that when we work together, we move individuals, families, and communities forward. The Y responds to society’s most pressing needs by developing innovative, community-based solutions to help those in need to reach their full potential. We are also committed to inspiring a spirit of service by uniting individuals from all walks of life to participate in and work for positive change.
