The YMCA is a deeply rooted non-profit organization committed to changing lives in the communities we serve. Caring, honesty, respect and responsibility guide all that we do and make us who we are. As a part of our Child Care programs, Y kids give back to others through monthly community service projects during the school year (Afterschool) and weekly projects in the summer (HYPE Middle School Camp). If you have a need or an idea, please let us know!
The Y knows that bringing about positive change starts with bringing the right people to the table. We promote advocacy through collaborations with policy makers, community leaders and private and public organizations to develop youth, prevent chronic disease and build healthier communities, and encourage social responsibility.
Understand the Y's place in our community's effort to provide an environment that fostors healthier living.
The Tennessee Alliance of YMCAs is an unincorporated alliance of YMCAs in the State of Tennessee, organized to foster statewide communication and cooperation among YMCAs in order to better advocate for and to better serve children and families in TN.
We also support local health initiatives through participation in REACH (Regional Education and Action Coalition for Health) and the United Way Vision Council – Aging with Choices.
