FOR A BETTER US
Since 1853, the YMCA of Central Kentucky has focused on empowering young people, improving health and well-being, and inspiring action in and across communities. At the Y strengthening community is our cause. We know that a strong community can only be achieved when we invest in our kids, our health and our neighbors. By bringing together people from different backgrounds, perspectives and generations, we ensure that all have access to the opportunities, relationships and resources necessary to learn, grow and thrive.
At the Y, we take immense pride in our work to help all of us be our best selves. We provide a place to play, to learn, to be healthy, and to give back. We believe that everyone, regardless of ability, age, cultural background, ethnicity, faith, gender identity, ideology, income, national origin, race or sexual orientation has the opportunity to reach their full potential with dignity. Everything the Y does is in service of making sure people and communities thrive.
Our mission is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all. With that and our cause of strengthening community, we're here to make Central Kentucky a better place for all.
