Empowering Change Every Single Day

The YMCA of Metropolitan Chicago is committed to strengthening community by connecting all people to their potential, purpose, and each other every single day. We empower our youth and families to connect with their lawmakers on issues impacting their daily lives. We work with like-minded community partners. We facilitate conversations between community leaders and YMCA staff. When all these efforts combine, we create a more equitable Chicagoland!
