Projects That Matter welcomes the YMCA

Our Projects That Matter Initiative is proud to announce a new partnership with the YMCA of the USA (Y-USA) to produce a 7 video series shot on location around the United States beginning this fall.

YMCA of the USA (Y-USA) is the national resource office for the Y, one of the nation’s leading nonprofits strengthening communities through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. Across the U.S., 2,700 Ys engage 22 million men, women and children—regardless of age, income or background—to nurture the potential of children and teens, improve the nation’s health and well-being and provide opportunities to give back and support neighbors. Anchored in more than 10,000 communities, the Y has the long-standing relationships and physical presence not just to promise, but to deliver, lasting personal and social change.  Additional information about the Y’s impact can be found on ymca.net

Headquartered in Chicago, the role of Y-USA is to strengthen its member associations’ ability to effectively carry out the Y’s mission in their communities and partner with all Ys to achieve the movement’s collective goals and priorities.
