At the Y, we believe that positive, lasting personal and social change can only come about when we all work together to invest in our kids, our health, and our neighbors.  As the leading nonprofit, we are committed to bringing about meaningful change in individuals and the community.  That is why we focus our work in three key areas: 

  • Youth Development:  Empowering young people to reach their full potential.

  • Healthy Living:  Improving individual and community health and well-being.

  • Social Responsibility:  Giving back, and inspiring action in and across the community.

The Shasta Family YMCA has always been community-centered. For over 75 years, we've been listening and responding to our community. The Y connects people of all ages and backgrounds to bridge gaps in community needs.  At the Y, we believe that everyone should have the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive, and we do all we can to nurture that potential.  The Y is unique in that it has local presence and global reach.  We continue to motivate our community to affect lasting, meaningful change, while being a member of the larger Y movement.  The Y has the presence and partnerships to not just promise, but to deliver, positive change. Together, we make for a better us.
