OUR OPERATING MODEL
THE Y: WHO WE ARE
The Y is the nation’s leading nonprofit committed to strengthening communities though youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. As a dedicated association of staff, volunteers, donors, partners and allies, the Bloomsburg Area YMCA is steadfast in our mission to build healthy, confident, connected and secure children, adults, seniors and families.
THE Y: WHAT WE STAND FOR
The Bloomsburg Area YMCA makes accessible the support and opportunities that empower people and communities to learn, grow and thrive, with three core motivations:
I. FOR YOUTH DEVELOPMENT
Because we believe that all kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve, we will focus existing programs on children and teens to more clearly cultivate the values, skills and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health and educational achievement.
II. FOR HEALTHY LIVING
Because we believe we have a responsibility to make a positive and measurable impact on the community’s health, we will directly leverage a mission centered on the balance of spirit, mind and body to strengthen and expand program offerings that bring families closer together, encourage healthy lifestyles and foster connections with others.
III. FOR SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
Because we believe in fostering the care and respect all people need and deserve, we will thoughtfully listen and aggressively respond to our communities’ most critical social needs.
The Bloomsburg Area YMCA is a cause-driven, non-profit, charitable organization committed to enrich all segments of the community in spirit, mind and body. The Bloomsburg Area YMCA promotes participation by all individuals regardless of religion, race, culture, income, age, ability or gender. Our facilities, programming and activities focus on developing self-confidence, leadership and ethics in our youth, promote healthy lifestyle principles and the prevention of chronic diseases, and are socially responsible for building a better community by fostering a greater appreciation for human and cultural diversity.
