The Y Brand Architecture
The Y brand architecture serves as a snapshot of who we are and how we deliver on our promise to strengthen the foundations of community. Our many programs, services, campaigns, initiatives and events support our three areas of focus: Youth Development, Healthy Living and Social Responsibility.
The YMCA of Greater St. Louis is a nonprofit organization dedicated to youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. Featuring 17 traditional Y branches and two Campus Y student leadership facilities on the Missouri side of the St. Louis Metro Area, our Y also includes YMCA Camp Lakewood & Trout Lodge in Potosi, Missouri. The Carondelet Park Rec Complex is owned by the City of St. Louis and operated by the Y. Membership and programming are based on our Core Values of caring, honesty, respect, responsibility and faith. The Y provides financial assistance to those who qualify thanks to our Strong Community Campaign. Our Y is a proud member of the United Way.
