Social Responsibility

We know that when we work as one, we move people and communities forward

That’s why we are committed to providing support to our neighbors and opportunities for kids, adults and families to give, join in or advocate in the name of stronger communities with social responsibility programs.

Volunteerism & Giving

The generosity of others is at the core of our existence. It is only through the support of our volunteers and public and private donors that we are able to give back to our community we serve.

Advocacy

We are a powerful ally and advocate for our communities. Our experience and strong relationships mean that we’re able to organize grassroots efforts and influence public policy around a range of social issues including child welfare, education and public health.

Global Services

Building a strong global community begins at home. Ys in the U.S. help young people develop cultural competencies, diverse populations connect to the community and individuals around the world gain access to life-changing resources and support.
