The Y is a powerful association of men, women and children joined together by a shared commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living and fostering a sense of social responsibility. We believe that lasting personal and social change can only come about when we all work together to invest in our kids, our health and our neighbors. That’s why, at the Y, strengthening community is our cause. Every day, we work side-by-side with our neighbors in 10,000 communities to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. Our core values unite us as a Movement. They are the shared beliefs and essential principles that guide our behavior, interactions with each other and decision-making.
The four values of the Y:
• Caring: Show a sincere concern for others
• Honesty: Be truthful in what you say and do
• Respect: Follow the golden rule
• Responsibility: Be accountable for your promises and action
