About the Y

Welcome to the Y!

For nearly 160 years, the YMCA of the Triangle has strengthened the very foundations of the community we serve. We’re proud of our diverse community and are passionate about being a positive force for good.

Over the years, we’ve made changes to meet the needs of our growing community. But one thing has stayed the same: our Mission to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.

 The YMCA of the Triangle is a private nonprofit organization governed by a local board of volunteer directors.

Our Focus

We're committed to nurturing the potential of children through Youth Development, improving the nation’s health and well-being by promoting Healthy Living, and fostering a sense of Social Responsibility by providing opportunities to give back and support neighbors.

Our Service

Our mission compels us to embrace, reflect and celebrate the richness of diversity within each other and the many communities we serve. In that Christian principles are caring and inclusive, we are respectful of various expressions of faith and serve families and individuals from all traditions, backgrounds and perspectives. Together, we work to ensure that everyone, has the opportunity to reach their full potential with dignity at our YMCA.
