Who Are We
The Monroeville Area YMCA puts
Judeo-Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
Our 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, millions of youth today are cultivating the values, skills and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health and educational achievement.
In communities across the nation, the Y is a leading voice on health and well-being. With a mission centered on balance, the Y brings families closer together, encourages good health and fosters connections through fitness, sports, fun and shared interests. As a result, millions of youth, adults and families are receiving the support, guidance and resources needed to achieve greater health and well-being for their spirit, mind and body.
The Y has been listening and responding to our communities’ most critical social needs for 160 years. Whether developing skills or emotional well-being through education and training, welcoming and connecting diverse demographic populations through global services, or preventing chronic disease and building healthier communities through collaborations with policymakers, the Y fosters the care and respect all people need and deserve. Through the Y, 500,000 volunteers and thousands of donors, leaders and partners across the country are empowering millions of people in the U.S. and around the world to be healthy, confident, connected and secure.
What We Do
In neighborhoods throughout Monroe County, we have the presence and partnerships to not just promise, but deliver, positive change. 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.
- We help today’s youth develop into strong, healthy adults.
- We empower individuals of all ages to live healthier lives.
- And, we inspire people to take better care of each other and our community.
Because we are committed to the idea that our community can be better tomorrow than it is today, our coalition of men, women and children impact lives every day in our county with a presence and partnerships to not just promise, but deliver, positive change.
Why It Matters
We impact lives across our county and around the world. Through the Y, our impact is felt daily in thousands of neighborhoods by nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living and fostering a sense of social responsibility. And our obligation to the community is growing. Together with our advocates, we will continue to innovate, embrace new partners and be a force for transforming communities – here and around the world.
Every community needs a leader. Someone who brings people together. Who compels others to action. Who empowers every individual to be at his or her best. So that the community as a whole can grow stronger and better together. This community has the Y. The Y is more than a health club. More than a community hub. More than a membership association. The Y is a coalition of men, women and children committed to the idea that our community can be better tomorrow than it is today. And together, we will make it that way.
