ABOUT US

Our Mission
To build a healthy spirit, mind and body based on Christian principles and to improve the quality of life for children, individuals and families in the Ambridge Area, Cornell, Moon Area and Quaker Valley school district communities.

Serving the Community and Strengthening Individuals
The Sewickley Valley YMCA serves a hub of health, fitness, and connection for Sewickley and the surrounding area. You'll be amazed by how much you grow as an individual when you work with others toward a common goal. Whether that goal is increased physical strength, weight loss, more stamina, or learning a new skill, you'll find that that the Y has the tools and opportunities to meet your needs and the needs of those around you. From the weight room, swimming pool, and basketball court to the teen center and active older adults socials, there's something for everyone. Connect, give back, and better yourself and others by joining the YMCA today!

We have several membership options for individuals and families of all ages. Financial assistance is also available for those who do not have the resources to pay the full membership or program fee. Support is provided for qualifying participants. It's just another way that we're able and support our community.

Our Values
Our four core character development values of Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility are shared beliefs and essential principles that guide our behavior, our interactions with each other, our programs and curriculum and our decision-making at the Sewickley Valley YMCA.

Our Philanthropy
The generosity of others is at the core of the Y’s existence as a nonprofit. It is only through the support of our volunteers and public and private donors that we are able to support and give back to the communities we engage.

We believe that everyone in our community should have the opportunity to benefit from YMCA programs and services. Our financial assistance program is central to our mission. When someone loses a job, when medical bills become overwhelming, or when other challenging situations occur, people need the support of the Y. Financial Assistance, supported by the Annual Campaign, offers programs and services of the Y at reduced rates based on low-income guidelines to fit the financial situation of individuals in our community. In 2018, the Sewickley Valley YMCA awarded $549,696 to1,723 individuals and families in need.
