Core Values

Healthy Living

The Y promotes physical fitness, mental well-being, and social connections through diverse programs and initiatives, empowering individuals and communities to lead healthier, balanced lives.

Youth Developement

The Y youth programs offer engaging and enriching activities for young individuals, fostering personal growth, leadership skills, and a sense of community through sports, education, arts, and character-building initiatives.

Social Responsibility

Giving back and providing support to our neighbors. The Y movement has been involved in character development from the beginning, emerging with four “core values” of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility. Our core values are incorporated into all of our programs and services to ensure that our members are able to learn, grow and thrive.


As a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, the Y provides crucial programs and services. With the help of generous donors, we have been able to transform the lives of families and individuals in our beloved communities. These funds go towards providing financial assistance to families in the Washington County Area, affording the capability to partake in opportunities they may not otherwise be able to afford. Last year we provided over $66,000 in scholarships and subsidies to over 760 local families right here in Washington County.
