Our Focus

We believe that to bring about meaningful change in individuals and communities, we must be focused and accountable. At the Y, we measure the success of our cause by how well we engage communities in our three areas of focus.

 

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

 

 

Youth Development:

We believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for life. Because of the Y, more young people in neighborhoods around the nation are taking a greater interest in learning and making smarter life choices. At the Y, children and teens learn values and positive behaviors, and can explore their unique talents and interests, helping them realize their potential. That makes for confident kids today and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.

Healthy Living: 

Being healthy means more than simply being physically active. It’s about maintaining a balanced spirit, mind and body. The Y is a place where you can work toward that balance by challenging yourself to learn a new skill or hobby, fostering connections with friends through our lifelong learning programs, or bringing your loved ones closer together through our many family-centered activities. At the Y, it’s not about the activity you choose as much as it is about the benefits of living healthier on the inside as well as the outside.

Social Responsibility:

The generosity of others is at the core of the Y’s existence as a nonprofit. It is only through the support of our hundreds of thousands of volunteers and public and private donors that we are able to support and give back to the communities we engage.

At the Worthington Area YMCA, our mission is “To put Christian principles into practice that build a healthy spirit, mind, and body.” We are a Young Men’s Christian Association that provides memberships, programs, and services that ultimately help us to build strong kids, strong families, and strong communities.

 

The YMCA is a charitable organization that exists to serve the community where there is a need. Our service includes a variety of recreational, wellness, and social service based programs for infants though senior citizens. The YMCA will not turn any individual away from membership or programs regardless of race, color, creed, religion, sex, or national origin.


 

We are located on the campus of Minnesota West Community College.

Parking: YMCA exclusive parking is on the north side of the YMCA and in the signed designated spots in front. Shared parking is in the MN West parking lot to the east.
