Mission Statement

The mission of Armed Services YMCA of the USA, on behalf of the National Council of the Young Men's Christian Associations, is to put Christian principles into practice through educational, recreational, social and religious programs and services for military personnel, both single and married and their family members.

Description

The Armed Services YMCA (ASYMCA), a donor-supported non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, is a national member association of the YMCA of the USA and works with the Department of Defense. Headquartered in Alexandria, Virginia, the ASYMCA has provided support services to military service members and their families for more than 140 years, particularly focused on junior-enlisted men and women -- the individuals on the front lines defending our nation and their families. ASYMCA operates at 17 dedicated branch locations and seven affiliated community YMCAs, as well as 10 Department of Defense/Department of Homeland Security affiliates worldwide.

The Fairbanks Satellite Office of the Armed Services YMCA of Alaska was established in December 2000 to provide programs and services for military personnel and their families. Our office serves Interior Alaska from Clear Air Station to Ft. Greely and including Ft. Wainwright, Eielson AFB, the Guard and Reserve. We operate a variety of programs including a free taxi service, Thrift Store, airport Military Courtesy Lounge, after school programs, free ticket distribution, free car seat loaner program, summer camp for children of the deployed, and more.
