Who We Are

The Y is the nation's leading nonprofit committed to strengthening communities through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. Our members believe in us and the values we stand for—caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.

Our Mission

To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all.







Youth Development

Nurturing the Potential of Every Child and Teen

We believe that all kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve. That's why, through the Y, hundreds of youth in the Kandiyohi County area are cultivating the values, skills and relationships that lead to positive behaviors and better health.

Healthy Living

In communities across the nation, the Y is a leading voice on health and well-being. The Y brings families closer together, encourages good health, and fosters connections through fitness, youth and adult sports, fun and shared interests. Youth, adults and families in the Kandiyohi County area are receiving the support, guidance and resources needed to achieve greater health and well-being for their spirit, mind and body.

Social Responsibility

Through the Y, hundreds of volunteers and donors, leaders and partners across the Kandiyohi County area are empowering thousands of people in our community to be healthy, confident, connected and secure.
