The Y is a cause-driven organization that is for youth development, for healthy living and for social responsibility. That’s because a strong community can only be achieved when we invest in our kids, our health and our neighbors.

We focus our work in three key areas, because nurturing the potential of kids, helping people live healthier, and supporting our neighbors are fundamental to strengthening communities.

YMCA Strategic Plan

The YMCA of Arlington has strengthened the foundations of our community since 1958. This strategic plan, “Building Bright Futures,” charts our course for the next five years, 2012-2017, positioning our organization to serve more people as we endeavor to develop youth, encourage healthy living and connect neighbors to neighbors. The YMCA’s mission, “To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all,” guides everything we do. Our core values, “caring, honesty, respect, responsibility and faith,” are central to who we are. In short, the Y is a cause-driven organization that strengthens the foundations of community.
