As the nation's leading nonprofit, the Y makes accessible the support and opportunities that empower people and communities to learn, grow and thrive. With a focus on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the Y nurtures the potential of every youth and teen, improves the nation's health and well-being, and provides opportunities to give back and support neighbors.
There is no other nonprofit quite like the Y. That's because in communities across Ventura and Los Angeles Counties, we have the presence and partnerships to both promise and deliver lasting personal and social change.
The Y is, and always will be, dedicated to building healthy, confident, connected and secure children, adults, families and communities. 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.
We believe that all kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve. That's why, through the Y, thousands of youth in Ventura and Los Angeles Counties are cultivating the values, skills and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health and educational achievement.
