(10)

The YMCA of the East Bay or 'The Y' is a diverse organization of men, women and children joined together by a shared commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living and fostering a sense of social responsibility. Our membership is 21 million strong, and spread across more than 2,600 YMCA associations nationwide. Since no two communities are exactly alike, no two YMCA's are exactly alike. We bring men, women and children – just like you together – and our shared commitment to our communities ensures the opportunities to learn, grow and thrive that we create for all are ones that endure. While our programs and facilities are always based on the unique needs and interests of our communities, every YMCA has one thing in common: our people. The volunteers, staff, members and donors of The Y are all united by a deep commitment to strengthening our communities.

Groundbreaking news 👷🎉! This week we kicked off work for our newest Early Learning Center in the Cherryland neighborhood of Hayward! We are so proud to provide a community solution for accessible high quality childcare and know the impact will be meaningful for so many families.

Huge thank you to our Early Childhood Impact team, our Board of Directors, CA Health and Human Services, Wells Fargo Bank, and Claudia Albano, Deputy Chief of Staff for Alameda County Supervisor Nathan Miley, District 4. Thank you all for bringing this project to life!

Our hearts and minds are with George Floyd’s family. Our hope is that today’s verdict is an inflection point to bend the arc of justice toward equity.

Despite the verdict, it does not erase the loss of George Floyd, nor does it eliminate the heartbreak felt across communities everywhere.

Today was a step toward accountability. It’s a step in a path toward justice and equity for all in becoming an anti-racist Y and an anti-racist society.

Now it’s in our hands. We all have a responsibility to challenge and end social injustice in our neighborhoods, schools, workplaces, and our communities as a whole.

The path toward justice is a marathon, not a sprint. We look forward to making deliberate progress in our strong Y community of committed volunteers, members, and staff as well as our future leaders, our youth.

Together we can build true equity for all.

General information

The Y makes strengthening our communities our cause. By offering affordable child care to low- and middle-income families, by developing drug prevention and anti-gang programs for at-risk youth, by helping military families cope with having a family member overseas, and through so many other programs that promote a healthy spirit, mind and body. Twenty-one million people of all ages and walks of life who turn to one of our more than 2,600 Ys each year know we’re here for them, because we’ve been here for them the last 160 years. That’s why we’re one of the largest community service organizations in the U.S. We count on the generosity of our members and partners to keep our doors open to whoever needs a place to go to help them be more healthy, confident, connected and secure
