Each day, the Y works 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. To do our important work, the Y relies on support from members, donors, volunteers and community leaders.
When you are involved with the Y, you help bring about lasting personal and social change. Whether you want to nurture the potential of children and teens, improve you or your family’s health and well-being, or give back and support your neighbors, your involvement with the Y will positively impact those in your community.
For five consecutive years, the Greater Joliet Area YMCA has earned a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity evaluator. The 4-star rating is the result of the Y’s strong financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency in its efforts to strengthen communities through Youth Development, Healthy Living and Social Responsibility.
