Program areas at Ymca of Metropolitan Dallas
Youth Development - Our YMCA is committed to nurturing the potential of every child and teen. We believe that all kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve. That is why we help young people cultivate the values, skills and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health and educational achievement. Our YMCA programs, such as Afterschool Childcare, Preschool, Child Watch, Youth and Government, Model United Nations, Swim Lessons, Swim Team, Teen Clubs, Youth Sports, Resident Camp, Outdoor Education and Summer Day Camp, offer a range of experiences that enrich cognitive, social, physical and emotional growth.
Social Responsibility - Our YMCA believes in giving back and supporting our neighbors. We have been listening and responding to our community's most critical social needs. YMCA programs such as: Make A Splash, the Urban Swim Program, Know Before You Go, College Scholarships, Community CPR/First Aid, and Program Scholarships are examples of how we deliver training, resources and support that empower our neighbors to effect change, bridge gaps and overcome obstacles. We engage YMCA members, participants and volunteers in activities that strengthen our community and pave the way for future generations to thrive.
Healthy Living - The YMCA is a leading voice on health and well-being. We bring families closer together, encourage good health and foster connections through fitness, sports, fun and shared interests. As a result, people in our community are receiving the support, guidance and resources they need to achieve greater health in spirit, mind and body. This is particularly important as our nation struggles with an obesity crisis, families struggle with work/life balance and individuals search for personal fulfillment. Programs such as: Adventure Guides, group adult classes, diabetes prevention, health screening, Turkey Trot, Adult Sports, Personal Training, and other recreational activities are some examples of healthy living programs that we offer.
