Engage with the Y

Our vision is to advance equity and justice for all in everything we do, everywhere we do it. By bringing more voices into the conversation, we seek solutions and promote healing and belonging and produce more equitable outcomes for all, especially Black, Indigenous & People of Color (BIPOC), as well as, other marginalized youth, families, older adults and communities, to develop their full potential.

The Y actively promotes a culture free from bias and injustice. We are dedicated to removing institutional and systemic barriers that result in oppression and racism. We will be accountable to marginalized communities for creating equitable and sustainable environments where social justice is woven into every facet of our programs, and by caring for our communities in a culturally versatile and respectful manner.

Walk with us. Learn more about Vision 2025 and our goals, strategies, and impact. And make the pledge to get involved as a donor, volunteer, and learner today.
