Youth Development

All kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve, under the guidance of adults who care about them and believe in their potential. We see every interaction with young people as an opportunity for learning and development.

Healthy Living

Here at the Y we are all about balance. We focus on improving the personal well-being of all age groups so that everyone can enjoy the goodness of life. That’s why we help people of all ages achieve their individual health goals and bring their families closer together. We give people the knowledge, inspiration and support to stay active, eat healthy and prevent or manage chronic diseases, and we provide them with opportunities to connect with others and get involved with their communities. It all adds up to greater health and well being in spirit, mind and body.

Social Responsibility

At the Y we focus on giving back and providing support to our neighbors. With our doors open to all, we work every day to bridge the gaps that divide people in our communities and to bring our cause to the people and neighborhoods that need us most. With our members, volunteers, staff and partners, we work to inspire a spirit of service in everyone we touch. From children to seniors, we help people embrace their responsibility to their communities.

All three of my children learned to swim at the Y at the age of three, in the indoor pool, and they all moved on to participate in the Water Sharks swim team.  In our family, we’ve had at least one child participate in the swim team for the last 10 years.  Whether learning to swim, participating in a positive and encouraging competitive swim team or swimming laps, our family’s participation in Y aquatics programming has led to lifelong skills and memories that I know are shared by hundreds of other swimmers in our community.  We look forward to the future and improved facilities that can help provide expanded aquatics and other programing to current and future generations of children and adults in the greater Washington community.
