The YMCA of San Diego County has been a proud member of the North County Philanthropy Council for many years because of our shared belief in the power of connection for good. With 14 wellness and program branches across San Diego County, plus 3 resident camps, 3 locations dedicated to social services and hundreds of childcare program sites, gymnastics centers and social workers in the field, we are moving forward as a catalyst to transform lives and communities. But none of this can be done without generous supporters and engaging partnerships across government, education, public and private organizations. At the Y, we nurture a healthy spirit, mind, and body so all can thrive while honoring our faith-based heritage. The YMCA of San Diego County was established in 1882 and is the largest YMCA association in the nation serving and employing hundreds of thousands of San Diegans annually.
Through a variety of programs and services focused on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the Y unites individuals of all walks of life to nurture the potential of children and teens, improve our communities’ health and well-being, and provide opportunities to give back and support neighbors. We believe to bring about meaningful change, individuals need ongoing support, encouragement and connections to others. From preschool to sports and fitness, camps, aquatics, senior clubs, mental health services, homeless youth outreach, to volunteerism and workforce development, we want all people to realize their fullest potential through positive, safe, and encouraging spaces and programs.
