Annual Current Support Campaign

We have always taken pride in the diversity of our membership, our financial aid program and the wide range of activities that are open to both members and to people in our community. All the wonderful things accomplished by the Altavista Area YMCA are only possible with your financial support.

We are more than a gym...we are a cause, that, with your generous support will continue to strengthen the community in which you live.



The Y is the nation's leading nonprofit committed to strengthening community through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. We believe strong communities are possible only when we invest in our kids, our health and our neighbors.

Our Mission

To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.

Our Cause

At the Y, strengthening community is our cause. We believe that lasting personal and social change can only come about when we all work together to invest in our kids, our health and our neighbors. That's why we focus our work in three areas: youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.
