We Welcome All Who Welcome All

All Are Welcome

To better strengthen our community, we believe all parts of society must have access to the Y. As neighborhoods change, societal perspectives and attitudes evolve, and communities become more globalized, the Y implements important actions to advance social equity and create a safe, welcoming space for all.

Daily, we work toward empathy in all interactions and activities. We recognize, value, and embrace all dimensions of diversity and work towards the full inclusion of all people. We develop cultural competencies, social awareness, and global perspectives, which build bridges between communities and foster the safe exchange of ideas, beliefs, and perspectives within and through the Y, locally and globally.

Culture of Inclusion

The YMCA of Columbia-Willamette staff, volunteers, members, participants, and guests thrive in culturally diverse and vibrant communities. We embrace all individuals and families and are inclusive and welcoming to all people, regardless of their background.
