Our Purpose Defines Us

We strengthen communities by connecting people to their potential, purpose and each other. With the pandemic, there was a big challenge to our purpose – but we didn’t stop. We take on the latest technologies and make sure nothing comes in between us and our people.

Y-USA is partnering with YMCAs as part of the Digital Transformation initiative. We provide a digital platform that is self-service, secure, automated, brand-compliant, cost-effective, plug-and-play, and easy to use. This helps to focus on improving member experience by reducing the total cost of ownership (TCO) for YMCAs.


Our Vision

We believe in forward-thinking – and not letting anything come between us and our people. We envision a future in which all people achieve health, gain confidence, make connections and feel secure at every stage of life.

With our digital platforms, we empower our associations to go beyond the boundaries set by physical terrain. With the Digital Transformative Initiative, we will allow our members to experience the Y from the comfort of their homes – safe and healthier than before!


Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

The Y is made up of people of all ages, from every walk of life, working side-by-side to strengthen communities. Together, we work to ensure that everyone, regardless of ability, age, cultural background, ethnicity, faith, gender, gender identity, ideology, income, national origin, race or sexual orientation, has the opportunity to reach their full potential with dignity.


Our Reach

Founded in London in 1844, the Y has grown into one of the largest organizations focused on strengthening communities in the U.S. and around the world, serving more than 64 million people in 120 countries. To grow even further, we are now doing digital. Physical YMCA locations are no longer a barrier for us as we take on the digital transformation.

Our People

Members, staff and volunteers of the Y include people of all ages and from all walks of life.
