About Us | Supporting Young People and Communities in Derby and Derbyshire

Vision, Mission & Values

Everyone should have a fair chance to discover who they are and what they can become.

YMCA believes in fairness and opportunity. There are essential building blocks for a full and rewarding life: a safe home; acceptance; guidance; friendship; physical and mental health; academic support; employment skills; and access to real opportunities. Many young people have never known these things; other people have lost one or more as they grew up, but we all need them. All of us. At YMCA, we provide these critical foundations for a fresh, strong start for young people and a better quality of life in the community.

Our mission is to develop the whole person, body, mind, and spirit.
