Welcome to the YMCA of Greater Seattle! We’re an inclusive organization of men, women and children with a shared commitment to nurture the potential of youth, promote healthy living and foster social responsibility.
Our Cause & Community Presence
At the Y, strengthening community is our cause. We work side-by-side with our neighbors throughout King and south Snohomish counties to help kids and families thrive – and apply their positive behaviors and goals at home, school, the workplace and beyond.
- 13 branches

- More than 200 program sites
Building a community where all people, especially the young, are encouraged to develop their fullest potential in spirit, mind and body.
We live our mission daily, one person and relationship at a time:

- Nurturing 96,009 children and teens to develop their gifts and give back to our community
- Engaging 18,746 volunteers who contribute 344,196 hours of service each year
