The Y’s mission is our reason for being, and the Y’s cause is our mission in action—a promise to do everything in our movement’s considerable power to enrich the common good and make life better for individuals, families, and communities. Delivering our cause draws inspiration and direction from both.

More than 160 years of innovating programs and delivering transformative responses to urgent social challenges have produced and reinforced a set of basic beliefs about how and why our movement effects meaningful, enduring change. Delivering our cause is grounded in these beliefs.

To ensure youth realize their potential to become active, engaged, and thriving members of the community, the Y will nurture their social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development through holistic youth programming, experiences, and supports.
