SOUTH SOUND YMCA | 2021
In the Y, our cause defines us. We know that lasting personal and social change comes about when we all work together. That’s why at the Y, strengthening community is our cause. Every day, we work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.
At the Y, we journey alongside our partners, identify and remove barriers, and provide resources so all people can thrive. By creating spaces for honest dialogue, learning and growing together, and finding big and small ways to challenge the status quo, we bring change from desire to action.

A BOLD VISION FOR OUR COMMUNITY
We envision the South Sound as an anti-racist community where all children see a path to their dreams, all people are valued, and each of us has the support and space to meet our potential.
We believe that the economic success of our community as a whole is dependent on addressing inequities in the intersecting issues of race, poverty, education and health that serve as barriers to individual success.
