About Our Mission

At the YMCA of Frederick County, strengthening community through youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility is our cause. Every day, we work side-by-side with community members to address the most pressing needs in Frederick County. We aim to ensure that everyone — regardless of age, income, or background — has the opportunity to learn, grow, and thrive. Our work is not easy, but real and lasting changes can only come about when we work together to invest in our kids, health, and neighbors. The first step to achieving these improvements is having the full support of our community.

Areas of Focus

The Y is a cause-driven organization for youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. These are the areas we are focusing on – one person at a time.

Youth Development

The Y nurtures every child and teen’s potential by supporting their unique youth development journey through holistic programming. From cradle to career, the Y provides all youth with the tools and resources they need to succeed.

Healthy Living

The Y aims to improve our community’s health and well-being by providing programs and activities that promote wellness, reduce the risk for disease, and help others reclaim their health. These programs and everything else the Y does are in service of making us—our Ys and our communities—better. The result is a society that values health and communities that support healthy choices.

Social Responsibility

We know that when we work together, we move individuals, families, and communities forward. The Y responds to society’s most pressing needs by developing innovative, community-based solutions to help those in need reach their full potential. We are also committed to inspiring a spirit of service by uniting individuals from all walks of life to participate in and work for positive social change.
