General Information

Welcome to Our Family!

You are experiencing one of the most complete YMCA’s in the United States. Our goal is to provide our members and community with access to quality programming, attentive service, and state-of-the-art facilities — all at an
affordable price.

In addition to a variety of health and wellness programming, we are most proud of our Community Outreach efforts, which reach more than 12,500 youth and families at a cost of more than $1.4 million in subsidized programs and services. There’s no way we could do that alone.

Volunteers Make it Happen!

Mission Valley YMCA staff and volunteers take part in the Annual Support Campaign. Last year, more than 12,000 people received programs and services valued at more than $1.4 million because of campaign gifts to our YMCA. Volunteers and staff raised this money, which allows us to offer more programs in the future and strengthen those already in place — all with the YMCA's mission as a guide.



Child Safety Statement

At the YMCA, we place extreme value on children’s emotional well-being and physical safety. We are rigorous in our employee screening and selection process. Interviews, reference checks, fingerprinting, and our Staff Code of Conduct are all proven-practices to ensure proper staffing.

Once hired, all staff attend a YMCA of the USA Child Abuse Prevention Training Program, and our management staff receive additional training in this area. Additionally, policy disallows any contact
between children and staff outside of YMCA programs or facilities.

We ensure proper staffing and knowledge through YMCA policies and guidelines that include:

  • Staff/Child relationships
  • Staff recruitment, training and supervision
  • Parent’s Rights and Responsibilities
  • All YMCA staff are mandated reporters of suspected child abuse and are trained in proper reporting procedures to Child Protective Services.
