The YMCA of Greater Whittier is all about making communities thrive. We believe that positive results are possible when we all work together. Below are some ways the YMCA gives back to support health and wellness, youth development, and social responsibility.
Promoting Success in Young People
Every kid deserves the chance to discover what they can achieve! The YMCA serves over 8 million kids annually through various programs and activities, including the million+ kids who learn to swim yearly at a YMCA, and the 1,400+ day camps where kids learn skills, develop character, and make new friends.
Making Health and Wellness Accessible
Living a healthier life should be within reach of everyone. To that end, we partner with health organizations such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and provide tools and information with community health programs.
Additionally, the YMCA of Greater Whittier believes in making our facilities, classes, and programs affordable to all. Within the available resources, we provide assistance and income-based membership rates to those who wish to participate regardless of their ability to pay.
Facilitating Community Involvement
The YMCA is committed to helping our communities thrive, and our volunteers make it happen. Across the nation, more than 230,000 people volunteer at the YMCA to make safe, inclusive, connected communities where everyone lives their best life.
