Our Mission

The Alliance of Kentucky and West Virginia YMCAs, Inc. exists to promote, support and protect member YMCAs as vital community strengthening organizations within the states of Kentucky and West Virginia.


Our Cause

Each day our goal is to strengthen communities. We believe that to bring about meaningful change in individuals and communities, we must be focused and accountable. At the Y, we measure the success of our cause by how well we engage communities in our three areas of focus: youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.


Meet Our Team 

Small in numbers, but strong in experience, the Kentucky and West Virginia State Alliance staff works tirelessly to serve YMCAs over a variety of disciplines with the common goal of providing Ys with the resources necessary to make the greatest impact on their communities.
