YMCA Board of Advisors

Throughout the Gateway Region YMCA, volunteer Board of Advisors work with local YMCAs and executives to carry out the Y's mission of strengthening communities through youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. 

Board members help the Y listen and respond to our communities' most critical needs. They help inspire compassion and involvement in our community through fundraising for the annual campaign, sharing personal testimonials, participating in special events and encouraging others to support the Y. 

Contact your local YMCA to see how you can get involved!
