We inspire youth to discover their purpose, passion, and potential.

An Inspirational Message from
Charlie Davis - CEO
YMCA of Pierce and Kitsap Counties
Students from the Franklin Pierce School District participated in the YMCA Center For Community Impact's physical activity programs. This program played a vital role in ensuring youth in the community were able to get the nationally recommended 60 minutes of physical activity each day, and develop the knowledge, skills, and confidence to be physically active for a lifetime
Middle school students were served in the Clover Park School District on a daily basis for 27 total days. The YMCA Center For Community Impact helped support their social/emotional well-being, provided enrichment activities and a safe and stable environment for students during the pandemic, and helped them to get ready to transition back to in-person learning.
Students are currently being served in the Clover Park and Tacoma School Districts. Students engage in transformational programs such as Filipino Club to learn about new cultures and a world outside of their own. Students also experience earth-conscious science with Nature Club. Here, students explore environmental concepts, grow plants, and so much more
Teens have participated in YMCA Youth and Government - a completely student-led, non-partisan, civic engagement program where hundreds of teens (grades 8-12) learn the basics of state government, practice public speaking, and learn parliamentary procedure.
Teens have attended the Pacific Region Conference. The goal of PRC is to provide a safe, supportive environment for teens to explore diverse topics with their peers. Topics can range from identifying values, building communication skills, to relationships, and making choices.
