YMCA of Greater Charlotte

Advocacy

We are a powerful ally and advocate for our communities. Our experience and strong relationships in neighborhoods all across greater Charlotte mean that we are able to organize grassroots efforts and influence public policy around a range of social issues including child welfare, education and public health.

Engagement is at the heart of our advocacy work.  Our staff are often found outside of our Y's, engaging in community efforts by participating on boards of other organizations, civic groups and initiatives.  Together with other passionate community advocates, we are able to create positive change in multiple areas.

Partners for Health
Like the Y, Carolinas Healthcare System believes that prevention is the best medicine.  Our unique partnership puts health professionals and wellness services usually reserved for the doctor's office in your YMCA.  Together, we advocate for greater access to preventative healthcare in our communities so that children and adults can live well and stay well.

YMCA Mission: To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
