Our Community

About 15 years ago, leading residents and business leaders in the northwestern part of Onondaga County decided they wanted a Y in their neighborhood. With guidance from the Greater Syracuse YMCA, they formed a board of volunteers to survey community needs, identify an appropriate site, develop building plans and gather the resources needed. In-depth surveys and analysis found that the area lacks sufficient recreational facilities and wellness programs for children, adolescents, families and adults.

Our Cause

The YMCA is a powerful association of men, women and children of all ages and walks of life, joined together by a shared passion: to strengthen the foundations of community. With a commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living and fostering social responsibility, the Y ensures that every individual has access to the essentials needed to learn, grow and thrive. Anchored in more than 10,000 neighborhoods around the country, the Y has the long-standing relationships and physical presence to deliver lasting personal and social change. The YMCA of Greater Syracuse has been a leader in providing healthy choices to Onondaga County residents since 1858. We are the county’s largest provider of school-age child care, and one of its largest employers of teenagers. Our innovative programs for health seekers - including cancer survivors and people at risk of diabetes – have earned national acclaim.


OUR MISSION

The mission of the YMCA of Greater Syracuse is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
