Our Cause Defines Us

The Y is a nonprofit like no other. Serving East Tennessee for over 160 years, we know that lasting personal and social change comes about when we all work together. That’s why at the Y, strengthening community is our cause. Every day, 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.

Our Areas of Focus

We are for youth development, for healthy living and for social responsibility. That’s because a strong community can only be achieved when we invest in our kids, our health and our neighbors.

YOUTH DEVELOPMENT: Nurturing the potential of every child and teen.

HEALTHY LIVING: Improving the nation’s health and well-being.

SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY: Giving back and providing support to our neighbors.
