Social Responsibility

Social Responsibility

The Y's passion is to strengthen the foundations of community. With a commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living and fostering a sense of social responsibility, the Y ensures that every individual has access to the essentials needed to learn, grow and thrive.

Together, we can make a difference.
As a nonprofit, volunteers and donors make our mission possible. As community and Y members help us, we are able to give back to the community. As an organization, we are socially responsible, and urge our members to be, as well. When we all come together for the community, we are stronger. Learn how YOU can give back and help us make the Y all it can be by volunteering or being a Y donor

Social services
We are proud to give back to our community through scholarships and special programs like these:

  • Summer Feeding: We provide meals to children and teens in our community who might not otherwise have food available to them during the day.
  • Y-CAP gives at-risk youth the chance to turn their lives around through counseling, tutoring, service learning and mentoring. 

Through these programs, and others like them, we are changing our community. 

The Y supports many other nonprofit organizations and causes. Through past partnerships, we have helped the Susan G. Komen Chattanooga Affiliate secure funds. And as an organization, we support healthy living. If we all work toward a better community together, great things will happen.
