At the Y, we are
committed to equity
and opportunity for all.

We are nurturing our community to become One Valley – a place where every child grows up with the support, preparation and experiences that they need to thrive; and a place where caring adults are alongside, learning and growing themselves.

The Y is one of the few organizations that brings together people of all ages, backgrounds, religions, income levels, and zip codes, for the good of one another and the broader community.

With YOUR help – our donors, volunteers, partners, members, staff and friends – we are building heathy communities, inspiring youth to be change-makers, and creating growth opportunities for all.

We invite you to review our 2019 community impact and all we have achieved together. We offer our deepest thanks for your belief in our mission and for your steadfast support.

Our Dreams
for the Community

We know that when people of diverse backgrounds come together, they experience better mental and physical health. Together they form a healthier, more vibrant community. Our future goals will give us the capacity to invite thousands more youth, families, and seniors to participate at the Y. That means more families and seniors will belong to a caring community, rather than being isolated, and more kids and teens will benefit from programs that empower educational achievement and leadership.

By 2025, we are committed to accomplish the following with your enduring support:

Grow programs that close the achievement gap and prevent chronic disease.

Ensure 100% of Y facilities are accessible to people of all abilities and mobilities.

Expand our Ys to enable more people to improve their health and connections.

Youth Development

At 14 years old, Gabriela was experiencing an onslaught of difficult circumstances, from being cyber bullied, to missing quality time with her father, to being sexually harassed. She didn’t know where to turn, who to talk to, or who she could trust.

Fortunately for her, a school friend was involved in the YMCA Youth and Government program, and was sporting a Y sweatshirt at school. When Gabriela inquired about the program, her friend told her about “the coolest program ever.” Discovering the power of community through the Y helped Gabriela become the compassionate, intelligent and committed young adult she is today.

Gabriella's Story

Healthy Living

For the Stein family, basketball is more than a sport. It’s a way to learn life lessons, stay healthy, and spend quality time together.

Eric Stein has shared the tradition of quality time through basketball with all three of his children. After raising his two sons prioritizing that quality time, he strives to do the same for his youngest daughter, Elyssa, a junior at Mountain View High School. For Eric, basketball has served as a catalyst for conversation and meaningful time with his kids. “Once you get them away from their devices, they start to open up,” he says.

The Stein Family's Story

Social Responsibility

Learning blossoms all summer long at the Y, where teens teach their peers the fundamentals of robotics and coding as part of the Y’s Full STEAM Ahead program.

Each week, friendships form, and excitement about the possibilities with robotics and coding grows. “I like that we’re able to break down barriers with STEAM,” says one teen leader, while watching her peers start to recognize their potential. “They realize they can do whatever they set their mind to.”
