Our Focus

The Summerville Family YMCA is, and always will be, dedicated to building healthy, confident and connected children, adults and families. Every day our impact is felt when an individual makes a healthy lifestyle choice, when a mentor inspires a child and when a community comes together for the common good.

In today’s world, we must demonstrate our impact. That’s why we have grouped our programs and services into three areas of focus.

For Youth Development

Nurturing the potential of every child and teen

We believe all kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve. That’s why, through the Y, youth are cultivating the values, skills and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health and physical and education achievement.

For Healthy Living

Improving our community’s health and well-being

All across the nation, the Y is a leading voice on healthy living. With a mission centered on balance, the Y brings families closer together, encourages good health and fosters connections through fitness, sports and fun. As a result, thousands of youth, adults and families in our community are receiving the support, guidance and resources needed to achieve greater health and well-being for their spirit, mind and body.

For Social Responsibility

Giving back and providing support to our neighbors

The Summerville Family YMCA has been listening and responding to our community’s needs since 1976. Whether developing skills or emotional well-being through education and training, welcoming and connecting people from all walks of life, building a healthier community through local collaborations, the Y fosters the care and respect all people desire and deserve. Every day, Y staff, volunteers and donors help empower people within the community we live, so that they can be healthy, confident and connected.
