We know that lasting personal and social change comes about when we all work together. That’s why at the Y, strengthening community is our cause. Every day, we work 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.
The YMCA of Selma, AL is an integral part of the Dallas County community. The organization has served the area since 1858 and is one of the first YMCAs in the United States. The YMCA of Selma-Dallas County has evolved from a focused organization serving young men in need of boarding and recreation to a strong, community-based organization that provides recreation, fitness, health, leadership, and spiritual development programs. In Dallas County, the YMCA is a safe place for people of all ages, races, incomes, and origins. The YMCA of Selma-Dallas County has stood the test of turbulent times. The non-profit led the way in diversity with an organized program for African Americans in 1945 while the entire area suffered and continues to suffer from the ramifications of racial turbulence. The YMCA has been a leading force in unifying the community by focusing on families working together through recreational, wellness, and spiritual development components. The YMCA of Selma continues to be common ground for a diverse membership.
