The YMCA of Greater Seattle is an inclusive organization of men, woman and children with a shared commitment to nurture the potential of youth, promote healthy living and foster social responsibility. The Y is a membership organization open to all people. They welcome women, men, girls and boys of all ages, races, ethnicities, religions, abilities, sexual orientations and financial circumstances. Their programs and branches embrace diversity, reflecting the people and needs of their communities.
In 1876, Seattle pioneers Dexter Horton, Rolland Denny and Catherine Maynard began meeting regularly to discuss strengthening their rapidly growing community, especially for the young. On August 7, 1876, they formally established the YMCA of Greater Seattle.
The same spirit of collaboration that united Seattle’s first families has been passed from generation to generation, as the Y continues to nurture youth, promote healthy living and foster social responsibility.
