Accelerator YMCA 2017-2020 Strategic Plan

To move the mission of the Accelerator Y forward, we’ve outlined four objectives we plan to meet by 2020.

1. Ensure young people who have experienced adverse circumstances get the high-impact and measurable support they need to be safe, successful and happy. 
2. Advance equity within the Accelerator YMCA and the YMCA of Greater Seattle.
3. Increase advocacy for issues that are impacting young people and families in our community.
4. Develop and maintain a diverse and sustainable group of volunteers and donors.
