Our Impact

We believe in the ability to inspire a brighter tomorrow.

Every day we set out to making a meaningful and measurable difference in the lives of others by focusing on three areas of impact:

For Youth Development

– Empowering young people to reach their full potential

Healthy Living

– Improving individual and community well-being

Social Responsibility

– Providing support and inspiring action in our communities

Together, we’re a better us.

The Y isn’t a building. It is people from all backgrounds and from all walks of life who come together to improve their lives, nurture their families and strengthen their community, together. We rely on the generosity of our community to ensure that everyone regardless of age, income or background, has access to the essentials needed to learn, grow and thrive. Please join us in making a difference on the First Coast.
