We focus our work in three key areas, because nurturing the potential of kids, helping people live healthier, and supporting our neighbors are fundamental to strengthening communities.
We believe that to bring about meaningful change in individuals and communities, we must be focused and accountable. At the Y, we measure the success of our cause by how well we engage communities in our three areas of focus.
The Alamance County Community YMCA has joined #GivingTuesday, a first of its kind effort that will harness the collective power of a unique blend of partners—charities, families, businesses and individuals—to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season. Coinciding with the Thanksgiving Holiday and the kickoff of the holiday shopping season, #GivingTuesday will inspire people to take
collaborative action to improve their local communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they support and help create a better world. Taking place December 2, 2014 – the Tuesday after Thanksgiving – #GivingTuesday will harness the power of social media to create a national moment around the holidays dedicated to giving, similar to how Black Friday and Cyber Monday have become days that are, today, synonymous with holiday shopping.
In our community, non-profits from all across the county are coming together to raise awareness and charity dollars for their cause. Our YMCA is meeting the challenge head on by setting a goal of $35,000 raised for new buses. New buses will bring a much needed update to our current fleet and make transporting our youth involved in after school, summer camps and specialty activities a more enjoyable
experience. Youth Development is at the heart of what we do as an organization and you can rest assured that every dollar we raise will go towards this area of focus.

We know that learning doesn’t end when the school bell rings. The way your children spend time after school can make a big difference in their personal development and your family-life balance. At the Y, kids engage in a variety of exciting physical and imaginative activities that encourage them explore who they are and what they can achieve. Through a variety of activities, children learn to respect themselves and others, work out their differences and discover the value of friendship. Activities include homework support, field trips, large and small group games, arts & crafts, swimming and devotions. Find out more by visiting our After School Page
