What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The YMCA of Central New York is a 24-million-dollar association, ranked in the top 90 Y's in the country. Our association has grown tremendously in the past 5 years and the administrative support needs have not grown with it. We must build the resources necessary in HR, Marketing, Development and operational oversight in order to meet the high demands of our 7 branches. In addition, the YMCA has an image issue which was discovered through our strategic planning process. Too many people view the YMCA as a gym and swim. The YMCA is far more than a gym, and we do not see ourselves as a health club. The image of the Y is important to us. We must work to help our members and the public understand the Y's cause-driven work, our community outreach programs, services to members, and the overwhelming work we do in our community.

Population(s) Served

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

1. Provide innovative programs and services that strengthen youth and families
2. Be a community leader for leadership and skill development for Teens
3. Extend our offerings of high quality programs and practices that nurture cognitive, social-emotional and physical development of all young people from birth to career
4. Expand the Y’s spirit, mind, and body framework in both existing and new communities to reduce the health & well-being gap in under-served and under-resourced communities
5. Strengthen current and establish new relationships with other entities to further a true community integrated health model
6. Ensure the Y’s healthy living framework provides equitable access to assist individuals and families in achieving their full health potential
7. Build intentional and collaborative partnerships with community-based organizations to address critical community issues
8. Provide supportive services to the most vulnerable in our community to improve the quality

The YMCA of Central New York has embarked on a full strategic planning process that include over 100 individuals including community leaders, business leaders, members, staff and volunteers. Throughout the four month process the YMCA built strategies that support our three focus areas of Youth Development, Healthy Living and Social Responsibility. We will address social issues, build capacity as an organization, increase our involvement in the community, address the aging infrastructure of the Downtown YMCA, increase philanthropic support and continue to enhance the quality of life through healthy living programs. Most important in our work is to ensure that every individual has access to the YMCA.

The YMCA of Central New York has restructured its staffing model to include several key leaders in the association. We have worked to eliminate the silos that exist in our branches and have begun the work of building consistencies in our work. We are in a good space for delivering on our cause. Our staff are excited about the future, the board is embracing the needed change and direction of the Y and our volunteers, and members which total more than 60,000 individuals are sharing their desire to be involved. The YMCA will invest dollars in technology upgrades that are needed to build efficiencies, collect data, and serve our members.

We are implementing our Strategic Plan actions and strategies in 2019.
