In some way or another, our lives have been touched by the three things that make the Y community so strong: Youth Development, Healthy Living and Social Responsibility.

When we share our stories on how the Y has impacted our individual lives, we’re able to share a glimpse of all the hope, strength and determination across the country and how everyone’s living the Y’s values. Whether the Y gave you confidence in yourself, taught you how to reach your goals, or is simply your “happy place,” we all have a story to tell.

Your Y. Your Camera. Your Story.

Now, it’s your turn. Do you have a Y story that’s changed your life? If so, we want to hear it! Go ahead, pick up your camera — any camera: a digital device, smart phone or tablet — send your video, share your story and show us how the Y has helped benefit you and your community.

We all have our favorite memories involving the Y — from learning to swim to sleeping away at camp to volunteering at a local event. Contact us to share your story. You might just be our next featured storyteller for the Y!
