OUR CAUSE DEFINES US
The Y mission: To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind, and body for all.
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.
The YMCA of Coastal Georgia has been serving the Coastal Georgia community for over 160 years, and continues to work every day to advance our cause to strengthen community through three areas of focus; youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility.
>We operate 11 units, in Bulloch, Bryan, Chatham, Effingham, Liberty, McIntosh and Glynn Counties; included is the YMCA before and after school program (YBASE), operating in 55 elementary and middle schools throughout the markets served. The YMCA serves men and women, girls and boys of all ages and from all walks of life regardless of the ability to pay. All of this and more is accomplished while putting forth the Y mission to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind, and body for all.
At the Y, we are guided by these four core values: caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.
