All kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve, under the guidance of caring adults who believe in their potential. We see every interaction with young people as an opportunity for learning and development–all grounded in the Y’s core value of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility.
We help people and families build and maintain healthy habits for spirit, mind, and body in their everyday lives. By helping kids, adults, families, and seniors from all walks of life improve their health and well-being, we build a stronger community.
With our doors open to all, we bring together people from all backgrounds, to support those in need. We take on the most urgent needs in our community and inspire a spirit of service in return. Our members, volunteers, supporters, and staff demonstrate the power of what we can achieve by giving back together.
Every dollar donated to the Cortland YMCA has a lasting impact on the people of Cortland County. If you’d like to donate for a specific purpose, please talk to Noah Beck or Margo Upson by calling (607) 756-2893.
