Our Promise

THE Y’S BELIEFS

We believe that when we devote our full strength to the Y’s mission and cause, work in partnership with others, and build on our history of innovation, we can address the most pressing issues of our time unlike any other organization.

We believe all people have potential.

We believe active and connected families make for active and connected communities.

We believe in a holistic approach to development, promoting healthy spirit, mind, and body.

We believe that in a diverse world, we are stronger when we are inclusive and our doors are open to all.

We believe in honoring our mission, living our cause, acting in accordance with our values, and placing the greater good above self.


At the YMCA of Greater Birmingham, we strive to live these beliefs every day. To do so, we have developed OUR PROMISE guidelines: to our members, to our youth, to our volunteers, to our donors, to our community, and to our staff – each other.

We ask that you join us by honoring these beliefs throughout your YMCA experience, and by using the OUR PROMISE guidelines, to hold us accountable every day.
