Cause Defines Mission
The YMCA knows that lasting personal and social change comes about when everyone works together. That’s why strengthening community is the YMCA cause. Every day, side-by-side with neighbors, the Y works to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.

Strength Is In Community
The Y is a nonprofit like no other. That’s because in 10,000 neighborhoods across the nation, the Y has the presence and partnerships to not just promise, but deliver, positive change. In Lincoln, the Y has been listening and responding to our community for nearly 150 years. The Y brings people together, connecting people of all ages and backgrounds to bridge gaps in community needs. The Y nurtures potential. At YMCA Camp Kitaki, kids take part in a multitude of activities that nurture positive self-esteem, friendships, teamwork and self-discovery. While at YMCA Youth Sports, kids build confidence and good sportsmanship. Taking Swim Lessons, kids learn to be safe in the water while staying active and engaged. In the YMCA’s After School Programs and Summer Day Camps, kids stay safe while furthering their educational knowledge and exploring clubs that bring out their interests.

Impact Is Felt Every Day
With a mission to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all, the YMCA impact is felt when an individual makes a healthy choice, when a mentor inspires a child and when a community comes together for the common good. Learn more.
