YMCA Alexandria believes that every child, youth, teen, adult, and senior deserves the opportunity to stay healthy in mind, body, and spirit. Therefore, we never turn anyone away for their inability to pay to participate in our programs and services.
YMCA Alexandria's mission is to foster the mental, physical, and spiritual development of individuals, families, and communities according to the ideals of inclusiveness, equality, and mutual respect for all.
We know that lasting personal and social change comes about when we all work together. Every day, we work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of income, age, or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow, and thrive.
In 2019, thanks to donations from community residents and Y members and staff alike, YMCA Alexandria distributed $132,000 in financial assistance to families that enabled their children to participate in our early learning and afterschool programs as well as our summer day camp.
