THE YMCA IS FOR ALL
At the YMCA of Catawba Valley, we believe in honoring our Christian mission, living our cause, acting in accordance with our values, and placing the greater good above self. It is our belief that, in a diverse world, we are stronger when our doors are open to all. Diversity and inclusion are core tenets of our mission “for all.” Our commitment to inclusion programs creates better communities, a better country, and a better world… for a better us. We work to ensure that everyone in our community feels welcome and fully engaged as participants, members, staff and volunteers.
We believe in helping our community address pressing social issues including child welfare, education, employment, housing and substance abuse. We work to make sure every child, family and community has what they need to make positive life changes and overcome obstacles.
We believe that building a strong global community is more important than ever. Our goal is to help create committed global citizens from our members. Ys across the U.S. help young people develop cultural awareness and knowledge so that the diverse populations that make up our world can connect and grow even stronger.
Volunteer-ism & Giving
We know that the generosity of others is essential for our existence. It is only through the support of our volunteers and public and private donors that we are able to give back to our community we serve and we are eternally grateful for their support.
We know that advocacy goes hand and hand with social responsibility. As a result we are a powerful advocate for our communities. We are able to organize grassroots efforts and influence public policy around a range of social issues including child welfare, education and public health.
The Y! provides you with the tools they need to grow and succeed.
