The Y is a cause-driven nonprofit focused on three areas of impact: youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility.
Nurturing the potential of every child and teen
We believe all kids have potential and should have the opportunity to discover who they are, express themselves, and be nurtured in all their possibility.
Improving Ulster County’s Health & Wellbeing
We believe that everyone has the desire to be well and that well-being is best cultivated by providing supportive relationships and environments. We also believe that all people should have the opportunity to be well in spirit, mind, and body.
Giving Back and Providing Support to Our Neighbors
We believe that we have a duty to try to help where help is needed. We believe that with support, resources and guidance, people can improve their own lives and the lives of others.
