At the Waynesboro Family YMCA, you don’t just join – you belong. You’re part of a cause. We believe in coming together to work on building A Better Us. To best serve our area’s most urgent needs, we regularly partner with dozens of local organizations, including: government agencies, school districts, religious groups, local small businesses, and other area nonprofits.
BUILDING A BETTER COMMUNITY
Every day, the Waynesboro Family YMCA takes on the challenges that shape our community’s future: closing the academic achievement gap, alleviating health disparities, maintaining seniors’ engagement and activities, preventing childhood obesity, and keeping teens in school. Where some see obstacles, we see opportunity – the Y provides an effective avenue for our members, staff, and supporters like you to make a powerful difference.
Waynesboro residents today are in critical need of programs focused on the prevention of diabetes and heart disease. Obesity and its related health problems have reached epidemic proportions, so it comes as no surprise that a 2022 area survey ranked good nutrition, increased physical activity, and weight reduction as the top community health priorities. A local, easily-accessible center offering programs focused on diet, exercise, and overall wellness has become an urgent necessity. Together, we have the power to address these challenges and transform our community. Every day, with your help, we can strengthen Waynesboro’s future generations as they pass through these same halls that have served the community so well in the past.
