Mission: The southwestern montana family ymca is a charitable community service organization that includes men, women and children of all ages, abilities, income, races and religions. We are dedicated to building strong kids, strong families and strong communities by putting christian principles into practice through programs that promote healthy lifestyles, strong values, leadership development, community interaction and international understanding. All personas are welcome at our ymca, regardless of their ability to pay. Our ymca is founded and led by volunteers from our community; volunteers also serve as mentors, coaches, program leaders, instructors and more.
Programs: Healthy living the ymca is a leading voice on health and well-being. We bring families closer together, encourage good health and foster connections through fitness, sports, fun and shared interests. As a result, people in our community are receiving the support, guidance and resources they need to achieve greater health in spirit, mind and body. This is particularly important as our nation struggles with an obesity crisis, families struggle with work/life balance and individuals search for personal fulfillment.
youth development our ymca is committed to nurturing the potential of every child and teen. We believe that all kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve. That is why we help young people cultivate the values, skills and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health and educational achievement. Our ymca programs, such as youth sports, summer camp, after school, and youth government, offer a range of experiences that enrich cognitive, social, physical and emotional growth
