WHAT WE STAND FOR
YOUTH DEVELOPMENT, HEALTHY LIVING & SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
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.
With a focus on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the Y nurtures the
potential of every youth and teen, improves the nation's health and well-being, and provides opportunities
to give back and support neighbors.
AREAS OF FOCUS
We believe that all kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve.
That's why, through the Y, thousands of youth today are cultivating the values, skills and relationships
that lead to positive behaviors, better health and educational achievement.
The Y brings families closer together, encourages good health and fosters connections through fitness,
sports, fun and shared interests. As a result, hundreds of thousands of youth, adults and families in
Middle Tennessee and southern Kentucky are receiving the support, guidance and resources needed to
achieve greater health and well-being.
The YMCA of Middle Tennessee has been listening and responding to our communities' most critical social
needs for more than 130 years. Thanks to community partners and thousands of volunteers who devote their
time, talent and financial support, the Y is able to provide access to life-changing programs and give
thousands in our community the chance to learn, grow and thrive.
LIVING OUR MISSION
