These People Called Y's Men and Women
We are men and women or and for the YMCA. Y's Men & Women meet on a regular schedule as a club, to learn about our community and be involved in the program thrust of our Washington YMCA. It is estimated that each year Y's Men & Women Clubs around the world provide hundreds of thousands of hours of voluntary service. Through our projects, millions of dollars are given each year to assist our local Y in meeting their budgets, purchasing needed equipment, erecting buildings, or sending young people to camp. Y's Men & Women also serve as active participating members of committees and boards at every level of the YMCA organization. Primarily, we work with and for the young people who utilize our camps, building and programs, We assist through personal involvement and fund raising projects to finance special needs and special programs that impact those who live in our community.
