The Y is a cause-driven organization that is for youth development, for healthy living and for social responsibility. With the Y, you're not just a member of the facility; you're part of a cause. With a shared commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, improving health and well-being, and giving back and supporting our neighbors, your membership gives you and your community the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.
The Y is for everyone. Our programs, services and initiatives enable children & teens to realize their potential, offer ways for families to have fun together, and empower people to be healthier in spirit, mind and body.

The YMCA of Dane County believes that all people have the right to take an active role in the Y community through participation and/or contribution. We will try to accomplish this by developing universally designed activities and opportunities. We believe people with varying abilities share a common healthy spirit. We are confident that our Y can strengthen the foundations of community through a commitment to both the value and practice of diversity. We recognize that inclusion is a process that will grow, develop and become more effective through the efforts of staff, volunteers, membership and the greater community.
