You may think you know the Y, but from A-to-Z, we’re nurturing the potential of youth, improving the country’s health and well-being, and giving back to support our neighbors.

To find out how the Y is so much more, watch our story featuring the shadow dance troupe, Catapult, from NBC’s "America’s Got Talent."

Our members and friends call us THEIR Y. We call them OUR greatest resource—the THOUSANDS of people who work alongside us and support our work to help our neighbors learn, grow and thrive.

What if we could harness all of that power to make an even greater difference on a bigger scale?

With programs from A to Z—like athletics to advocacy, dance classes to disease prevention, volleyball to volunteerism—we don’t just strengthen individuals, we strengthen our community.

Yet there is so much more to do.

The Blue Water Area faces new challenges that create a greater need for the work we do. Fortunately, where some see obstacles, we see opportunities for our members, volunteers, staff, and generous donors like you to make a difference. No other organization can impact as many people as powerfully as we do every day.

The YMCA of the Blue Water Area is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Your gift is deeply appreciated and tax-deductible.
