The Dallas YMCA strives to provide opportunities to help individuals:

  • Develop self-confidence, self-respect, and know their own self worth.
  • Grow as responsible members of their families and as citizens of their communities.
  • Recognize the worth of all persons and strive for interracial and intergroup understanding.
  • Develop their capacities for leadership and use them responsibly in their own groups and community life.

The mission of the YMCA is to put Christian values into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all. 

We accomplish our mission through programs that build character, and we build character by teaching and demonstrating positive values. Our values embrace the universal truths inherent in relationships with others: Respect, Responsibility, Honesty and Caring.

It is the purpose of the YMCA to give every child the opportunity to participate in programs to learn the importance of good sportsmanship and fair play through Christian principles.  The YMCA Philosophy is to allow children to participate in a low key, non-competitive program with emphasis on having fun, development of character, respect for others and fair play.  The YMCA provides a variety of child care programs including preschool care, after school care, summer day camp, teen camp and preschool discovery camp. The YMCA offers financial assistance for all programs. Read more here....
