The YMCA is a cause-driven organization focused on three key areas: youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. The YMCA believes a strong community can only be achieved when we invest in our kids, our health, and our neighbors. Its programs, services, and initiatives enable youth to realize their potential, offer families ways to have fun together, empower people to be healthier in spirit, mind and body, welcome and embrace newcomers and help foster social responsibility. In Snohomish County, the Y has been serving and strengthening the community since 1901.
