About YMCA (website)
For more than 160 years, the YMCA of Metropolitan Milwaukee has strengthened the foundations of our community by “Putting Christian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all.”
The YMCA of Metropolitan Milwaukee’s vision is: “to become recognized as a leading community collaborator that achieves bold results in the areas of youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility, with an emphasis on youth, families and aging adults.”Our impact in Milwaukee is widespread, from teaching thousands of kids to swim each year, to being one of the only safe spaces open seven-days-a-week in the neighborhoods we serve.
We also believe that lasting personal and social change happens in the places where our members live, work and play. That’s why in addition to our center-based programming, we are committed to being vocal advocates for healthy families and partnering with others to improve the greater good in Milwaukee beyond our four walls.
