2010 – For the first time in 43 years, the Y is unveiling a new brand strategy. The strategy is designed to increase understanding of the impact the organization makes in the community so that more people take advantage of the Y’s unique capacity to foster lasting personal and social change.
The Y is, and always will be, dedicated to building healthy, confident, connected secure children, adults, families and communities. Every day our impact is felt when an individual makes a healthy choice, when a mentor inspires a child and when a good community comes together for the common good.
