OUR FOCUS

Our Mission

To strengthen the safety, health, and well-being of families in Schuylkill County through social service, social change, and men's and women's leadership development.

Who We Are

The Y is the nation’s leading nonprofit committed to strengthening communities through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. We’re a spirit, a movement and a cause. Members join us because they believe in us and the values we stand for - caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.

What We Do

The Y makes accessible the support and opportunities that empower people and communities to learn, grow and thrive. With a focus on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the Y nurtures the potential of every youth and teen, improves the nation’s health and well-being, and provides opportunities to give back and support neighbors.

How We Do It

The Y is a non-profit like no other. That’s because in neighborhoods across the county, we have the presence and partnerships to not just promise, but deliver positive change.

  • The Y is community-centered. For nearly 160 years, we’ve been listening and responding to our communities.
  • The Y brings people together. We connect people of all ages and backgrounds to bridge the gaps in community needs.
  • The Y nurtures potential. We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.
  • The Y has local presence and global reach. We mobilize local communities to effect lasting, meaningful change.

Our Impact

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

Youth Development

Nurturing the potential of every child and teen
We believe that all kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve. That’s why through the Y, hundreds of youth in Schuylkill County are cultivating the values, skills and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health and educational achievement.

Healthy Living

Improving the nation’s health and well-being
In communities across the nation, the Y is a leading voice on health and well-being. With a mission centered on balance, the Y brings families closer together, encourages good health, and fosters connections through fitness, sports, fun and shared interests. As a result, thousands of youth, adults and families in Schuylkill County are receiving the support, guidance and resources needed to achieve greater health and well-being for their spirit, mind and body.

Social Responsibility

Giving back and providing support to our neighbors
Whether developing skills or emotional well-being through education and training, welcoming and connecting diverse demographic populations through community services, or building healthier communities through collaborations with community leaders, the Schuylkill Y fosters the care and respect all people need and deserve. Through the Y, so many volunteers and donors, leaders and partners are empowering people in our community to be healthy, confident, connected and secure.
