Our impact by the numbers
The YMCA believes that every child has potential. Serving children in the Greater Cleveland region, the Y’s youth programs help kids learn critical life skills, discover their passions, and grow in confidence.
In 2021, we served 4,015 children in youth programming which is driven by our values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. Thousands of kids have learned to swim with us. Our youth sports programs teach children teamwork and sportsmanship. We have basketball and football leagues, and many branches offer Junior Cavs. Some branches offer We Run This City, a youth running program, which we provide through several school districts.
