Inspiring all people to a healthy life - in spirit, mind and body is the mission that guides the work of the YMCA of Superior California. More than a pool or gym, the Y is a cause dedicated to the positive development of youth, healthy living for people of all ages, and social responsibility in addressing the critical needs of the communities we serve. With programs from athletics to advocacy, dance to disease prevention, and cycling to child care, the Y doesn’t just strengthen individuals, we strengthen communities.
The YMCA of Superior California was formed as a result of the merger of the Yolo County, Yuba-Sutter, Oroville and Greater Sacramento YMCAs and now encompasses five service areas - Sacramento, Yolo, Oroville, Gold Country, and Yuba-Sutter; each volunteer-led, and each a powerful advocate for the needs of children, families and individuals in their communities. We are the continuation of a 150 year legacy of providing values-based programs for youth, teens, adults and seniors at YMCA facilities and program sites throughout the region. And, while our programs are based on the unique needs and interests of the communities in which they reside, each of our Y’s has one thing in common: our people. The volunteers, staff, members and donors of the Y are all united by a deep commitment to strengthening community and ensuring that everyone - regardless of age, income, or background - has the opportunity to reach their fullest potential. Because, we believe that opportunity shouldn't be a privilege. Together, we ensure it's a right.
