This Month’s Impact Maker

Our Mission

To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.

The YMCA of Youngstown remains true in its dedication to Christian principles and ideals that have been a cornerstone throughout its history. Through a variety of programs, facilities, connections and resources, the Y remains committed to maintaining the balance of the triangle that represents spirit, mind and body. Besides a chapel for prayer and quiet time at each of our facilities, the Y offers group bible studies, support groups and resources to help you in your daily walk of life.

Spiritual Emphasis Committee

The YMCA Spiritual Emphasis Committee is a group of individuals committed to keeping the “C” in the YMCA. Some of their work includes the distribution of 750 devotional guides through the cooperation of The Radio Bible Class Ministry, fundraising to purchase bibles for first-time campers at Camp Fitch, Advent and daily morning devotions, Ash Wednesday services, prayer baskets, food collection and the annual Good Friday Breakfast. The committee works closely with YMCA staff and local clergy to help lead those to faith in God through Jesus Christ.
