YOUR MAT-SU YMCA

ABOUT US

WHO

OUR COMMUNITY!

The Mat-Su YMCA Steering Committee is bringing YMCA programs to the Mat-Su Valley. We are local individuals who recognize the need for youth and family programs that the YMCA excels in providing. We have a longstanding partnership with the existing Anchorage YMCA that offers support in building programs specific to our own community.

WHAT

WHAT EXACTLY IS THE YMCA?

The YMCA of the USA is a mission-based, family focused, organization with nearly 160 years of service in the U.S. The YMCA puts Christian principles into practice, welcomes and supports children and families and helps build the values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility through programs that build healthy spirits, minds, and bodies. The nation’s 2,617 YMCA’s serve more than 20.2 million people each year, uniting men, women and children of all ages, faiths, backgrounds, abilities, and income levels. At the heart of community life across America, mission-driven YMCA’s are “a place to belong” and to live the values that guide and unite our members. “You’ve seen one YMCA…you’ve only seen one YMCA,” according to the YMCA of the USA.

 

Based on the results of a survey conducted by the Mat-Su YMCA we are focused on the needs of our community. After school programs, affordable swimming lessons, and teen programs were far and above the most requested programs.

 

THANK YOU TO OUR COMMUNITY MEMBERS THAT COMPLETED & SHARED THE SURVEY!!

WHEN
