Mission

Founded in 1883, YMCAs collectively make up the largest nonprofit community service organization in America. YMCAs are at the heart of community life in cities, neighborhoods and towns across the nation, working to meet the health and social service needs of 16.9 million men, women and children.

With programming based on the four core values of Caring, Honesty, Responsibility, and Respect, YMCAs help people of all ages, faiths, ethnicities, incomes, sexual orientations and abilities develop the skills and tools they need to thrive. Longtime leaders in community-based health and fitness and aquatics, YMCAs teach kids to swim, offer exercise classes for people with disabilities and lead adult fitness classes. They also offer hundreds of other programs in response to community needs, including camping, child care (the YMCA movement is the nation's largest not-for-profit child care provider), teen centers, environmental programs, youth sports, parent/child programs, job training, international exchanges and many more. No-one is turned away for inability to pay.

Each local YMCA is guided by a volunteer board of directors and is an independent charitable nonprofit, qualified under Section 501(c)(3) of the U.S. Tax Code. A national YMCA office, called the YMCA of the USA, is located in Chicago and is charged with serving member associations. Member associations in turn are required by the national constitution to pay annual dues, to refrain from discrimination of any kind and to support the YMCA mission. All other decisions are local choices, including programs offered, staffing and style of operation.

YMCAs are at work in more than 120 countries around the world, serving more than 30 million people. Some 230 YMCAs in the United States maintain more than 370 relationships with Ys in other countries, operating international programs and contributing to the YMCA world service. In its own way, every YMCA nurtures the healthy development of children and teens; strengthens families; and makes its community a healthier, safer, better place to live.

Health and Wellness

Originally founded in 1939, the YMCA of the Mid-Peninsula provides services at six YMCA facility locations in the Mid-Peninsula region: the Page Mill YMCA and the Palo Alto Family YMCA in Palo Alto; the El Camino YMCA and the YMCA Wellness Center in Mountain View; the Lewis and Joan Platt East Palo Alto Family YMCA in East Palo Alto; and the Sequoia YMCA in Redwood City. Additionally, we partner with school districts, health care providers, and many other government, non-profit and community organizations to provide services at other locations in the community, to leverage our knowledge, and prevent duplication of services.
The YMCA's programs are available to everyone regardless of their ability to pay and many of our program participants are from low-income families. In 2007, the YMCA of the Mid-Peninsula reached more than 50,000 people and provided close to $2 million in financial assistance and program subsidy. These subsidies are made possible through the annual volunteer fundraising efforts of hundreds of community members as well as generous grants from foundations and corporations.

We offer hundreds of programs such as group exercise classes, child care, in school and after school fitness for youth, youth sports clinics and leagues, personal training, nutrition workshops, day and resident camps, teen leadership programs, parent/child programs, swimming lessons, aqua aerobics, family counseling, and pre/post natal exercise, among many others.

A uniquely volunteer-driven organization, the YMCA offers opportunities for people of all ages to grow in spirit, mind and body. With a holistic approach and a proactive focus on providing character-building and values-reinforcing programs for youth, families and adults, the YMCA strives to give individuals the tools that they need to make healthy decisions now and in the future.
