At the Y, we believe all kids have potential and should have the opportunity to discover who they are, express themselves, and be nurtured in all their possibility. We believe the values and skills learned early on are important building blocks for life that lead to positive behaviors, better health and educational achievement. Because of the Y, more young people in neighborhoods around the nation are taking an interest in learning and making smarter life choices. That makes for confident kids today and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.
In communities across the nation, the Y is a leading voice on health and wellbeing.Being healthy means more than just being physically active. It’s about maintaining a balanced spirit, mind and body. The Y is a place where you can work toward that balance by challenging yourself to learn a new skill or hobby, fostering connections with friends through our lifelong learning programs, or bringing your loved ones closer together through our many family-centered activities. At the Y, it’s not about the activity you choose as much as it is about the benefits of living healthier on the inside as well as the outside.
The Y has been listening and responding to the most critical social needs of our communities since 1844. Whether developing skills or emotional well-being through education and training, welcoming and connecting diverse demographic populations through global services, or preventing chronic disease and building healthier communities through collaborations with policymakers, the Y fosters the care and respect all people need and deserve. Through the Y, 500,000 volunteers and thousands of donors, leaders and partners across the country are empowering millions of people in the U.S. and around the world to be healthy, confident, connected and secure.
The Greater Valley YMCA is one Y association with seven branches. For over 100 years, we have made tangible differences in the communities of Allentown, Bethlehem, Catasauqua, Easton, Forks, Nazareth, those comprising the Slate Belt region and the Lehigh Valley as a whole. While merging has made us better able to meet community needs, each Y retains its own unique character and exists to serve the people closest to it. Come visit our branch closest to you.
