The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
Vision We build strong kids, strong families and strong communities. The Akron Area YMCA, serving Summit, Medina and Portage Counties, is a faith based, social service health and recreation agency. A private, not-for-profit charity, supported in large part by contributions, the YMCA provides opportunities for membership programs, leadership and facilities that develop the whole person, spirit, mind and body.
Core Values Our core values are caring, honesty, respect and responsibilityâ youâ ll see them demonstrated by our staff and implemented in all of our programs. While they come from the Christian heritage on which the YMCA was founded, we believe they are still very important today in the development of the whole person â spirit, mind and body. The emphasis we place on these values distinguishes the YMCA from other public and private clubs and programs.
