Join the Mission - Advocacy with the Y


OUR MISSION | To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.

When you’re part of the YMCA of Greater Charlotte, you belong to something bigger. Although many think of us as brick and mortar facilities or just a “gym and swim,” the Y is an organization that gives back to our community, provides services for those in need and seeks to create lasting personal and social change for a better future.

Our vision for the community aligns with our mission and values. The Y advocates for policies, causes and programs that transform lives and communities and bring about meaningful and enduring change for individuals, families and communities. We aim to develop and carry out intentional programs and initiatives will strengthen three impact areas recognized by Y’s across our nation – youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.

We seek to share our story with those who can help us advance this mission and support our work in lifting up our citizens and our communities.
