Our Greater San Antonio area is large in scale but the YMCA provides the opportunity for us to become a more connected community.

The Y exists to strengthen the foundations of our community through Youth Development, Healthy Living, and Social Responsibility. We are a place where anyone and everyone can find respite from social, physical, economic and/or educational challenges, and learn how to overcome them.

People engage with the Y on one level, but they soon find a deeper meaning to their activities and a connection to those around them. Ultimately, at its highest form, they feel compelled to volunteer, to give back and help others strengthen the entire community.
