Strengthening YMCAs in Oregon

The Oregon Alliance of YMCAS represents the interests and concerns of independent YMCAs throughout the great State of Oregon.

We are a grassroots-driven and governed organization that advocates and educates on behalf of the YMCA and its mission to promote youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. We diligently monitor legislative and regulatory issues and educate policymakers on all of the community services provided by YMCAs throughout Oregon. 

We are an extraordinary group of dedicated nonprofits working together to strengthen the communities in Oregon! Each of our Ys are equipped and motivated to deliver lasting personal and social development to people of all ages, races, backgrounds, faiths, abilities and income levels.

We serve our member YMCAs by functioning as a resource for YMCA executives and directors. The Alliance convenes and supports 10 networks, or peer communities: 

Chief Executive Officers 

Membership and Operations Directors 

Healthy Living Directors 

Sports Directors and Coordinators 

Aquatics Directors and Coordinators 

Human Resources and Finance Directors 

Financial Development/Fundraising Directors

Marketing & Communications Directors 

Facility and Safety Directors 

Youth Development Directors 

Child Protection at the Y

The safety and well-being of children in the care of Ys across the U.S. is, and always will be, our top priority.

Our Mission: 

The YMCA is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.

Our Focus: 

The Y is a cause-driven organization that is for youth development, for healthy living, and for social responsibility. That’s because a strong community can only be achieved when we invest in our kids, our health, and our neighbors.
