We are a statewide collective of YMCAs dedicated to maximizing our impact in youth development, healthy living and social responsibility; and communicating that impact with one voice, statewide. 


The Wisconsin/Upper Peninsula Michigan State Alliance of YMCAs is an association representing the interests and concerns of the 30 independent Ys across Wisconsin and the UP Michigan to build capacity and leadership in the areas of Youth Development, Healthy Living and Social Responsibility. The Ys are a collection of nonprofit organizations that are grassroots-driven and volunteer-led. The Alliance functions to advocate on behalf of local Ys to promote our three areas of focus while fostering statewide communication and collaboration.

Collectively, Ys serve more than 667,000 Wisconsinites; so that together we can inspire change by addressing local issues and deliver our cause by strengthening communities. Through strategic partnerships and collaborations with school districts, higher education institutions, hospitals, local and state government; we work diligently to achieve our mission of building healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
