Mission Partners Campaign

Together, we can create a better us.

138 years strong, the Y beyond any building, is a positive force in this community. Together, we take on the challenges that shape our area's future.

Because people believe everyone has the power to make their lives and community better, we open our doors to all. Community contributions make a better us possible.

Our Youth Development Impact

Helping children develop self-confidence, character values, relationship-building and leadership skills by providing innovative and nurturing youth programs.

· CHILD CARE Parents can work and children can thrive because they can utilize our preschool and school-age child care programs.

· DAY CAMP Summer Day Camp provides an extended all-day program for youth during the summer, that supports working families; instilling healthy habits and reducing summer learning loss at the same time.

· YOUTH SPORTS Seasonal youth sports provides an introduction and positive experience tying fitness, sports skills, teamwork, and values education into the program's foundation. Our role is to provide an experience where kids feel that sports are fun and want to continue in lifetime activities.

We seek to expand successful programs to reach more people who need them, with a focus on the most vulnerable.

Our Healthy Living Impact

We create communities that support healthy living by addressing childhood obesity and chronic disease among children and adults and are foundational to their physical, intellectual, and spiritual strength.

· On any given day, families from a regional area visit the All-Access Playground. Thousands of families visit this playground on the grounds of the Campus Family YMCA.

· Group Exercise has been a signature community building effort at the Campus Family Y, through the work of mission-driven instructors and innovative efforts.

· Whether it's in a youth development program, in a group exercise class, a community-driven effort or in our wellness center, the YMCA helps facilitate the health efforts of the community.

We help people and families build and maintain healthy habits for spirit, mind, and body in their everyday lives.

Our Social Responsibility Impact

We strive to instill an ethic of volunteerism by providing opportunities for our community to give back and serve.

· NO ONE IS TURNED AWAY BECAUSE OF AN INABILITY TO PAY The Y brings together people from all backgrounds and supports those who need us most. We stand ready to take on the urgent needs in our community.

· THE SPIRIT OF VOLUNTEERISM We instill an ethic of volunteerism by providing opportunities to give back and serve their community.

· ADVOCACY Our donors, members, volunteers, supporters, and staff demonstrate the power of what we can achieve by telling the Y story and giving back...together.

YMCA donors, volunteers, members, and partners make the difference. Charitable donations help our greater community and everyone in it shines.

Every dollar donated to the YMCA of St. Joseph has a lasting impact on the people right here.
