Through these partnerships we commit to helping youth of all backgrounds develop leadership skills, self-esteem and character.

About the YMCA Outreach Initiative:

YMCA of the USA, the Armed Services YMCA and the Department of Defense have launched the YMCA Military Outreach Initiative to address the needs of families of deployed military personnel who live far from a military installation and require access to child development, family strengthening, and healthy and well-being programming.

The YMCA Military Outreach Initiative leverages the YMCA movement's national scale and mission to engage families facing the hardship and uncertainty of military deployment. The nation's 2,686 YMCAs have the unique capacity to respond to the needs of this widely dispersed population through supportive community-based programs that foster a healthy spirit, mind and body.
