The Y for Youth Development

The Y for Youth Development

Nurturing the Potential of Every Child and Teen

We believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for life. Because of the Y, more young people in neighborhoods around the nation are taking a greater interest in learning and making smarter life choices. At the Y, children and teens learn values and positive behaviors, and can explore their unique talents and interests, helping them realize their potential. That makes for confident kids today and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.

Character Development


Believing is the first step to being - At the Y, we believe everyone deserves the opportunity to develop to their fullest potential and live their best lives. The YMCA's core values - Caring, Respect, and Responsibility - serve as our guide, helping our members and participants to be more healthy, confident, connected and secure.
Character Development gives us the ability to meet our mission. By holding ourselves accountable and building character around our core values, we build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
  • Caring: to demonstrate a sincere concern for others, for their needs, and well-being. Related values: compassion, forgiveness, generosity and kindness
  • Honesty: to tell the truth, to demonstrate reliability and trustworthiness through actions that are in keeping with my stated positions and beliefs. Related values: integrity and fairness
  • Respect: to treat others as I would want them to treat me, to value the worth of every person, including myself. Related values: acceptance, empathy, self-respect and tolerance.
  • Responsibility: to do what is right - what I ought to do, to be accountable for my choices of behavior and actions and my promises. Related values: commitment, courage, good health, service and citizenship.

We offer a variety of youth sport programs for children of all ages. Registration for each sport opens at different times of the year.
