Since 1911, the Washington University Campus Y has been creating civic leaders of consequence through programs that engage students in community involvement and social justice. As a branch of the Gateway Region YMCA, our Student Members are a part of the global YMCA movement to build a healthy spirit, mind, and body for all.

The Executive Council serves as the primary programming and policy-making body for the Campus Y. Other leadership responsibilities are carried out by the Program Leaders and Program Chairs. Program Chairs recruit and manage Program Leaders. Program Leaders recruit and manage volunteers for the programs offered each academic year. 

Campus Y Student Members are volunteers from all classes and all areas of study at Washington University. They represent some of the most caring and committed leaders across a broad spectrum of interests among our student body. Each member enjoys the satisfaction of seeing the impact of their program, as well as the experience of making significant advances in their own development as a leader.

Our Annual Campaign provides financial assistance and subsidies to ensure all who wish to participate can, regardless of their financial situation. Growing our Annual Campaign will ensure that we scale and expand our programs into our most vulnerable communities. To ensure we are deepening our impact, we will innovate our programming to meet community needs.
