Stevens Point Area YMCA Vision

To be the identified leader in providing programs and services that enrich the quality of life for the communities we serve.

Organizational Philosophy
The Stevens Point Area YMCA has been learning and growing with area families for many years. We understand the trials that today’s families face, we are aware of their hurdles and obstacles, and we embrace their dreams. We believe that families- regardless of culture, ethnicity, or even socio-economic background- have at least one common hope. Parents want an improved life for their kids, a life with fewer struggles and greater rewards. Our goal at the YMCA is to help parents and families realize that dream by nurturing the full potential of children and teen, by improving the health and well-being of those we touch and by motivating people to support their neighbors and the larger community.

The Y is about changing lives for the better.
