A Cause-Driven Culture

As a 501(c)3 charitable community organization, each of our staff and volunteers makes a difference in the lives of those we serve, every day. At the Y, we call this a cause-driven culture: the way we think, act and communicate directly builds our cause, to strengthen community. This starts with passionate, committed leaders at all levels of the organization, and leads to strong supportive teams, and significant opportunities for professional development and growth from within.

Stories & Impact

Through this trying time, the Y has been here for our community. The Park South YMCA has been able to distribute over 6000 pounds of fresh produce, 200 bags of toiletries and essentials, and 100 senior only food and snack bags in a community that is feeling isolated and cut off more than usual.

Employee Resource Groups

Employee Resource Groups  (ERG’s) are groups of employees that form with a common bond, shared characteristic or life experience. They provide support, help with career or personal development, and work to address issues inside and outside of the workplace. These 3 ERG’s are supported through the YMCA Professional Network.

  • Women Empowered - Women’s ERG
  • Campeones Unidos - Hispanic/ Latino ERG
  • DREAM - African American ERG

Our Vision and Commitment to Inclusion:  

The Y is made up of people of all ages and from every walk of life working side by side to strengthen communities.  Together we work to ensure that everyone, regardless of ability, age, cultural background, ethnicity, faith, gender identity, ideology, income, national origin, race or sexual orientation has the opportunity to reach their full potential with dignity.  Our core values are caring, honesty, respect and responsibility- they guide everything we do.

The Dallas YMCA intentionally leads, and boldly models, a diverse and inclusive culture to impact and strengthen the foundation of our community.
