The Virginia Alliance of YMCAs is comprised of 27 independent Ys, serving 100 communities throughout the Commonwealth. The Alliance brings Virginia Ys together to improve the effectiveness and capacity of YMCAs to better serve their members and communities in the Commonwealth of Virginia through key initiatives and programs at a statewide level. Members of the Alliance work with local, state and national organizations and leaders to support the Y movement and our cause.
At the Y, strengthening community is our cause. We believe that lasting personal and social change can only come about when we all work together to invest in our kids, our health, and our neighbors. As charities, YMCAs across Virginia exist to strengthen their communities and every day we work with thousands of men, women, and children to ensure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.
