Our Purpose

The Y is a leading non-profit committed to strengthening community by connecting all people to their potential, purpose and each other. Working locally, we focus on empowering young people, improving health and well-being, and inspiring action in and across communities. 

Our Mission

As a cause-driven organization, the Y’s Mission is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all. Our three main Areas of Focus include Youth Development, Healthy Living and Social Responsibility. When you support your local Y, you are:

  • Helping our youth develop self-confidence, character values and leadership skills by providing innovative and nurturing youth programs.

  • Creating communities that support healthy living by addressing childhood obesity and chronic disease among children and adults and supporting their physical, intellectual and spiritual strength.

  • Instilling an ethic of volunteerism by providing opportunities for South Palm Beach County to give back and serve their communities.

Our Vision

Our YMCA serves as a community anchor in Palm Beach County by enriching lives and strengthening community through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. 


YMCA Programs & Services Access

The Y is committed to providing equal access to its programs, facilities, and enjoyment without regard to race, ability, creed, national origin, and gender. We celebrate the presence of differences that make each person unique. We intentionally engage and develop all members of the Y community. And we strive to connect and serve populations at home and around the world.


The YMCA of South Palm Beach County has several strategic initiatives, including Drowning Prevention, LIVESTRONG at the YMCA, Parkinson's and other Chronic Disease's Programs and Diabetes Self-Management Program to name a few. The support of our donors and community enables the Y to turn no one away due to their inability to pay. 

Our Y offers financial assistance to those who may be facing financial hardships or challenges. It would not be possible for our Y to impact the lives of so many in our community without the generous support of our Annual Giving Campaign donors and partners each year.
