WHO WE ARE
OUR MISSION AND VALUES
For more than 130 years, the YMCA of Middle Tennessee has
been guided by its Christian mission and values to strengthen
the foundations of our community and nurture the potential of
the men, women and children who call the greater Nashville area home. As a leading
nonprofit dedicated to meeting community needs, we engage people
across eight counties, giving more than 313,000 of our neighbors—more than
a third of them kids—the chance to learn, grow and thrive.
A worldwide charitable fellowship united by a common loyalty to
Jesus Christ for the purpose of helping people grow in spirit,
mind and body.
In all that we do, our YMCA is guided by these core character
values: Caring, Honesty, Respect & Responsibility.
Our YMCA continues to be led as it has been since its founding—by dedicated staff and
volunteers with a shared commitment to making our community stronger by helping people
grow in spirit, mind and body. Every day, our staff and volunteers work side-by-side
to fulfill our charitable Christian mission.
