Strategic Plan

The YMCA of South Hampton Roads was founded in 1856 as a beacon that continues to link communities, empower young people and transform lives. Today, we honor our rich history as we shape our extraordinary future.

At the Y, everyone belongs regardless of their zip code, race, income, gender or religion. We champion equal access to opportunities that nurture potential and help each unique individual thrive. We also believe that a unified community is more likely to understand, value and demand equity for all of its citizens.

Our strategic plan is a vision that reflects a comprehensive process involving staff, volunteers, members and community. A year-long endeavor, blending feedback, critical thinking and data analysis, our strategic plan aims to propel our Y’s growth and impact for today and generations to come.
