WISCONSIN/U.P. MICHIGAN ALLIANCE OF YMCAs

OUR CAUSE DEFINES WHO WE ARE

The YMCAs of Wisconsin and the upper peninsula Michigan understand that lasting personal and social change comes about when we all work together. We are driven by our cause to strengthen communities statewide. Every day, we work side-by-side with our neighbors to ensure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background as the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.

 

The Reach of the Y

 

567,000+ Wisconsin and U.P. Michigan individuals belong to the Y. From the Mississippi River to the shores of Lake Michigan, the Y offers programs and services to meet the needs of our communities.

1214,000+ children under the age of 18 are members of the Y.

We Give Back

 

Wisconsin and the U.P. Michigan YMCAs provide over $10.2 million in direct financial assistance to those in need. These resources help ensure that, regardless of income, children and families have opportunities to be active and stay healthy.

Stronger Together

 

We have the communities trust to convene, partner and support collaborations with schools, government, faith-based organizations, businesses and others. In fact, Wisconsin YMCAs reported 2,078 collaborations across our communities.

WHY THE Y IS DIFFERENT

Every day our impact is felt when an individual makes a healthy choice, when a mentor inspires a child and when a community comes together for the common good.

 

YOUTH DEVELOPMENT

 

YMCAs provide children under age six with critical early learning, and school-age kids with safe, dependable places to grow before and after school. Our early childhood and after school programs are crucial supports for working parents and ensure that our children are classroom-ready.

 

The YMCAs of Wisconsin/Upper Michigan support thousands of children in our school-age programs, offering families the peace of mind they need.

HEALTHY LIVING

 

The Y provides a supportive environment for families of all backgrounds, ages and abilities where people can meet their health and well-being goals through exercise, nutrition and chronic disease programs like our Diabetes Prevention Program and LIVESTRONG® Cancer Survivor Program.

 

Our Y offers programs to youth and adults that empower them to becomes their best selves by offering instruction and support.

SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

 

Part of the Y mission is to give back to our communities, and help everyone, regardless of income, be a member of the Y family. From volunteers who give their time and energy to support our mission, to the amount of Financial Assistance we give to families who cannot afford a membership, we strive to fulfill our responsibility to our communities every day.

 

At the Y, we believe in membership for all. That is why we provide financial assistance to community members in need.
