    About Us

    Our Mission
    To strengthen our community by improving the quality of life and inspiring individuals and families to develop their fullest potential through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.

    Who We Are
    The Y is the nation’s leading nonprofit committed to strengthening communities through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. We’re a spirit, a movement and a cause. Members join us because they believe in us and the values we stand for—caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.

    What We Do
    The Y makes accessible the support and opportunities that empower people and communities to learn, grow and thrive. With a focus on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the Y nurtures the potential of every youth and teen, improves the nation’s health and well-being, and provides opportunities to give back and support neighbors.

    How We Do It
    There is no other nonprofit quite like the Y. That’s because in communities across Santa Barbara and Ventura counties, we have the presence and partnerships to both promise and deliver lasting personal and social change.

    Our Impact
    The Y is, and always will be, dedicated to building healthy, confident, connected and secure children, adults, families and communities. Every day our 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.
