Founded in 1854, the YMCA of East Tennessee is a charitable organization working toward a better community for us all. Every day, the Y supports kids, adults, seniors, and families with programs that connect, teach, protect, heal, nourish, and encourage. We work side by side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone – regardless of age, income or background has the opportunity to learn, grow, and thrive.
How We Make A Difference:
- We strengthen the foundation of communities through:
- Youth Development: Empowering young people to reach their full potential
- Healthy Living: Improving individual and community well-being
- Social Responsibility: Giving back and inspiring action in our communities
We know that when we work together, we move individuals, families and communities forward. The Y responds to society’s most pressing needs by developing innovative, community-based solutions to help those in need to reach their full potential. We are also committed to inspiring a spirit of service by uniting individuals from all walks of life to participate in and work for positive social change. The Y. For a better us.™
