Statewide Impact

Our Impact

 

At the Y, we’re for healthy living, youth development, and social responsibility. Virginia YMCAs are in more than 100 diverse communities around the state, and serve 1.4 million Virginians, both children and adults. The Virginia Alliance of YMCAs advocates on behalf of these 28 Y Associations. Did you know we are the largest early and out of school time learning provider in the state? Did you know Virginia YMCAs reach pre-diabetic Virginians with the CDC-recognized evidence-based Diabetes Prevention Program (YDPP)? And that we teach more kids how to swim than any other institution, which are lessons in safety, healthy living, and self-confidence? At the Y, we do so much more.

 

Youth Development

 

YMCAs provide children under age six with critical early learning and school age kids with safe, dependable places to grow before and after school. Our early childhood and after school programs are crucial supports for working parents and ensure that our children are classroom ready.
