The purpose of the Minot Family YMCA shall be to develop Christian character and to aid in building a Christian society by the maintenance of such activities and services that contribute to physical, social, mental and spiritual growth.
To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind, and body for all.
We know that lasting personal and social change comes about when we all work together. That’s why, at the Y, strengthening community is our cause. Every day, we work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.
We believe that to bring about meaningful change in individuals, families and our community, we must be focused and accountable. We measure the success of our cause by how well we engage in our three areas of focus: Youth Development, Healthy Living and Social Responsibility. That’s because a strong community can only be achieved when we invest in our kids, our health and our neighbors.
Defining our areas of focus:
Youth Development: Nurturing the potential of every child & teen.
Healthy Living: Improving the nation’s health and well-being.
Social Responsibility: Giving back and providing support to our neighbors.
The YMCA is for everyone. Our programs, services and initiatives enable kids to realize their potential, offer ways for families to have fun together, empower people to be healthier in spirit, mind and body; welcome and embrace newcomers and help foster a community-wide service ethic. And that’s just the beginning.
