SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY Global Services Founded in 1844 in London, England, the Y has grown into one of the largest volunteer organizations in the world, serving more than 45million people in 120 countries. Ys in the US have played a key role in the growth and strength of the global organization and continue to partner with other Ys worldwide to address critical social issues. From welcoming newcomers to the US to helping prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS in Ethiopia, Ys have the strength, experience and commitment to bring about positive change.

YMCA World Service Since 1889, World Service has raised awareness of and financial support for the powerful work the global Y is doing every day, delivering life-changing programs that help people thrive and reach their full potential. Specifically, the Prairie Valley Family Y has a partnership with the YMCA of Honduras and supports them in their work improving youth rights. Ask us how you can help support this worthy cause.

Volunteerism and Giving The generosity of others is at the core of our existence. There is no other volunteer organization quite like the Y. That’s because in 10,000 communities across the nation, we have the presence and partnerships to not just promise but deliver lasting personal and social change. As the nation’s leading non-profit for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the Y provides kids, adults, families and communities with vital support and opportunities to learn, grow and thrive. When you volunteer at the Y, you take an active role in bringing about meaningful, enduring change right in your own neighborhood.

Global Education The Y helps people develop cultural competencies and key skills to collaborate with their peers around the world. From global curriculum in camping and afterschool programs to international servicelearning opportunities and partnerships, the Y gives people the knowledge, experience and confidence to successfully interact in an increasingly globalized society.

Newcomer/Immigrant Engagement The Y was created to help young people navigate in a new city far from family, friends and the comforts of home. This premise has extended throughout our history. Welcoming and engaging newcomers continues today with Ys across the country offering people the assistance they need to better transition into new communities. Through services such as refugee settlement and adult education classes like English as a Second Language, the Y helps people to be self-reliant, productive and connected. As an interconnected global network, the Y has the resources and solutions to build bridges at home and abroad to make our changing communities better and stronger moving forward.
