Charting impact

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

We are committed to nurturing the potential in youth, promoting healthy living, and fostering a sense of social responsibility in all that we do. Our objective is to create a community of healthy kids, teens, families, and seniors who embrace fitness in body, mind, and spirit.

The YMCA helps youth develop the character required to cope with the pressures of growing up in today's world. Our goal is to help kids feel good about themselves, enjoy life, and to deter them from the dangers of drugs or gangs. Values such as caring, respect, honesty, and responsibility are taught by positive role models on a daily basis.

Wellness programs are offered at the YMCA through a partnership with Athens Regional Health System. Cancer wellness programs, nutrition classes, diabetes prevention, obesity programs and health fairs are offered to help community members achieve greater health and well-being.

The Athens YMCA offers quality afterschool and summer programs from children ages 5-15. Values such as caring, respect, honesty, and responsibility are taught by positive role models on a daily basis.

• The Y is a leading nonprofit improving the nation's health. In communities across the country, the Y helps people achieve well-being, reduce their risk for chronic disease and reclaim their health when they are living with one.

• In Athens, the YMCA is on the forefront of preventing chronic diseases like type 2 diabetes through a new diabetes prevention program, showing measurable results.

The Athens YMCA is well positioned to address community wellness needs as we have the passion and commitment to the community to begin to make change.

We currently serve over 8,000 members including youth, men and women.

The Athens YMCA serves over 425 youth each quarter through Afterschool Programs and Summer Day Camp. Daily programs include swimming lessons, teen fitness, study hall, football, basketball, arts and crafts, mountain biking, cheerleading, soccer, Tae Kwon Do, modern dance, and seasonal indoor/outdoor games and activities. Over 1,200 children attend during the school year and 1,000 during summer day camp.

The YMCA has aquatics programs for people ages six months to seniors. We also provide an adaptive swim program for children with developmental disabilities such as autism, cerebral palsy, and Downs Syndrome.

For adults, the Athens YMCA offers a variety of activities including fitness classes, racquetball, basketball, walking trails, cardio equipment, free weights, and Cybex equipment. The senior GOLD program is an active older adult program that offers not only fitness classes, but fellowship as well.

The community benefits greatly from having a place where families can gather and participate in so many diverse activities. We have partnered with local agencies such as the March of Dimes and Relay for Life. We also partner with local public and private schools in Clarke and surrounding counties.

Yet to come are building renovations and increased community awareness of the YMCA as a leading nonprofit charity. We will also collaborate with other local organizations to better serve our community and provide new, innovative program for youth, families, and active older adults.
