2022 Annual Impact
Building a community where all people, especially the young, are encouraged to develop their fullest potential in spirit, mind, and body.
As we reflect on the past year, we are so grateful for the ways in which our community has shown up for each other. It has been another year of remarkable progress and growth at the YMCA of Greater Seattle, and we are so proud to share our successes with you all.
Video Description: What is the Y? The Y is so much more than a gym. We are driven by our purpose and mission to further equity and justice for all. We are a space for community – and for change.
Looking back at our impact and progress in 2022, by Frank X. Shaw, Board Chair, YMCA of Greater Seattle.
Read the Letter from the President and CEO, Loria Yeadon, about the YMCA of Greater Seattle's vision and accomplishments in 2022.
The Y’s commitment to equity and justice was furthered through a range of initiatives last year.
In 2022, the Y Social Impact Center rose to meet the challenges facing our youth and young adults in the wake of the pandemic.
Promoting health and wellness has always been at the heart of the Y. Last year, we brought back many in-person classes, rolled out new ones, delivered hundreds of on-demand programs through YMCA360®, and much more.
Connected, capable, confident -- that’s our vision for developing youth potential across all our before and after-school programs, outdoor camps, and teen leadership programs.
Volunteers and donors are an integral part of the Y. To recognize those who give back, and in commemoration of the late Judge Charles V. Johnson and his partner, Mrs. Lazelle Johnson, we added an Excellence in Social Justice award to our annual volunteerism awards event in 2022.
2022 was a great year, marked by the impact and progress we made for our youth, families, and individuals throughout branches and sites across our region.
Thank you for your unwavering support and commitment to the Y. Seeing the smiles on kid’s faces in the swimming pool, in the play zones, and numerous programs as families return to the Y makes it all worthwhile. We hope our progress in 2022 will inspire you to continue supporting our mission to empower youth, improve health, and strengthen communities.DOWNLOAD FULL REPORT
