Story

As an organization with more than a century of experience in caring for our community, the Valley of the Sun YMCA responds quickly to these challenges; creatively expanding our programs to meet our community when, where and how we are needed most.

Thanks to the generous support of our donors, we can continue to ensure the health, safety and well-being of every YMCA child and family. We are working to pave the way for a bright future to all of our community no matter their age, race, gender or socioeconomic status.

OUR MISSION

The Valley of the Sun YMCAs mission is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all.

OUR CAUSE

At the Y, strengthening community 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.

DEVELOPING COMMUNITY LEADERS

Y programs provide safe spaces to allow teens and young adults to build a sense of belonging and develop their self-identity.

In 2024, the Y will:

• Provide affordable access to the Counselor-it-Training programs which offers leadership development training and teaches the skills necessary to obtain a summer camp counselor position.

ADVANCING CHILDHOOD DEVELOPMENT

Y programs provide experiences rich in social and emotional learning because youth can achieve their potential when they are nurtured by supportive adults.

In 2024, the Y will:

• Provide 260 kids with scholarships to create a meaningful camp experience that is affordable to all and develops their confidence, social skills, and leadership.

STRENGTHENING FAMILIES

Y programs support parents in creating stronger families in order to lower child poverty, reduce social-isolation and increase positive health outcomes.

In 2024, the Y will:

• Allow access for families, regardless of income, to participate and build memories together at Family Camp at YMCA Camp Sky-Y.
