To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind, and body for all. YMCA programming, youth sports, swim lessons and all other Y activities are all rooted in the mission of the YMCA.
As a Y member, we hope you will reflect on our four core values. We feel that these values will promote character in our youth and adults and reflect the true spirit of our organization.
Caring to demonstrate a sincere concern for others, for their needs and well-being.
Responsibility is to do what is right, to be accountable for my choice of behavior and actions and my promises.
Honesty to tell the truth, to demonstrate reliability and trustworthiness through actions that are in keeping true with my stated positions and beliefs.
Respect to treat others as I would want others to treat me, to value the worth of every person, including myself.
Community, each day we strive to strengthen the community. We work side by side with our members in the community to ensure that everyone regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to grow, learn and thrive. Our work is focused on three fundamentals youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility.
Youth Development: Nurturing the potential of every child and teen.
Healthy Living: Improving the health and well- being of those we serve.
Social Responsibility: Giving back and providing support to our neighbors.
When you join the Aberdeen Family YMCA you aren’t just joining a gym, you are part of a community, with people that are just like you, focused on their well- being of their mind body and spirit.
