At the YMCA of Metro Atlanta, we believe all people, especially children, deserve an equal chance to reach their full potential.


The YMCA responds to unmet community needs with programs and services that have measurable outcomes. Our strategic plan organizes our efforts around a four-part agenda: ensure school readiness; improve academic achievement; inspire civic leadership; and empower healthy living.

YMCA of Metro Atlanta Association includes 18 family membership branches, 13 early learning centers, 2 stand-alone youth and teen development centers, 2 resident camps, and more than 50 afterschool program sites.

Our Impact: 

Serving Atlanta since 1858, the YMCA is an integral part of this community, providing opportunities for children, teens, adults, and seniors to learn, grow, serve, and thrive. Through a blended and sustainable revenue model that includes earned revenue, public support, and private philanthropy, we support families and strengthen communities through education, wellness, and youth development, especially in our city’s most underserved communities.

In the past year alone, the Y prepared more than 3,000 children for kindergarten through early learning programs; improved academic achievement of 4,000 children, ages 5-12, during after-school hours; engaged 10,000 teens at local Ys and taught more than 1,500 teens to serve others through year-round leadership programs; provided research-based wellness initiatives to 250,000 people through our youth, teen, and adult programming. The Y raises funds through the WHY IT MATTERS Annual Giving Campaign to ensure no one is turned away due to inability to pay.

Our Mission:

The YMCA, reflecting its Judeo-Christian heritage, is an association of volunteers, members, and staff, open to and serving all, with programs and services which build spirit, mind, and body. Financial assistance is available based on need. The YMCA actively seeks to identify and involve those in need.
