To put Judeo Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
The Y’s commitment to Collier County is developing new generations of changemakers who will create a community we all want to live in. We envision a community where all people achieve health, gain confidence, make connections and feel secure at every stage of life.
The Y has served as a leading nonprofit committed to strengthening the Naples community for more than 50 years. The Y empowers everyone, no matter who they are or where they’re from, by ensuring access to resources, relationships and opportunities for all to learn, grow and thrive. By bringing together people from different backgrounds, perspectives and generations, the Y’s goal is to improve overall health and well-being, ignite youth empowerment and demonstrate the importance of connections in our community.
At the Y, we take immense pride in our work to strengthen communities and help all of us be our best selves. We provide a place to play, to learn, to be healthy, to eat well and to give back. We give parents childcare, seniors a way to connect and children a safe place to go. We believe that everyone—no matter who they are or where they’re from—deserves the opportunity to reach their full potential. Everything the Y does is in service of making sure people and communities thrive.
AREAS OF IMPACT
The Y is a cause-driven organization that is for youth development, for healthy living and for social responsibility. That’s because a strong community can only be achieved when we invest in our kids, our health and our neighbors.
Empowering young people to reach their full potential: Through programs such as early education & child care, youth sports, water safety and swim lessons, summer day camp and after school, the Y provides youth of all ages the opportunities they need to succeed, grow and realize their full potential.
Improving individual and community well-being: People of all ages and backgrounds have reclaimed their health, managed stress, overcame obesity, strengthened family bonds and attained personal fulfillment at the Y. Group fitness classes, adult sports, pickle ball, tennis, swimming, personal training are just a few of the ways members get the support and resources they need to find greater balance in the social, physical, spiritual and emotional well-being.
Providing support and inspiring action in our communities: Our social responsibility drives us to be both a catalyst for healthy change, as well as a resource for those who need our assistance. Financial assistance, volunteering and partnerships are just some ways we strengthen the community.
