The West Cook YMCA
  • Oak Park, IL, USA

Many organizations offer programs as an end to themselves, but YMCA offers programs as a vehicle to deliver our unique mission of putting Christian principles into practice to build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all. The goal of YMCA programs is to help enrich lives and teach people how to grow spiritually, mentally and physically. As a YMCA member YOU are part of a worldwide movement, which is in over 120 countries dedicated to making this world a better place—one person at a time. Collectively, YMCAs are the largest not-for-profit community service organization in America. YMCA's are at the heart of community life in over 2,800 neighborhoods and towns across our great nation. Y's are for people of all faiths, races, abilities, ages and incomes. No one is turned away for inability to pay. We believe that the YMCA's strength is in the people they bring together. The Y is built on the Christian principles of Caring, Honesty, Respect & Responsibility.
