Nurturing the potential of every child and teen. All kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve. That’s why, through the Y, thousands of youth in Santa Barbara and Ventura counties are cultivating the values, skills, and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health, and lifelong achievement.
Improving the nation’s health and well-being. The Y is a leading voice on health and well-being. With a mission centered on balance of the spirit, mind, and body, the Y encourages good health and fosters connections through fitness, sports, and shared interests, to achieve greater health and well-being for the whole person.
Giving back and providing support to our neighbors. The Channel Islands YMCA has been listening and responding to our communities’ most critical social needs since 1887. Through the Y, thousands of volunteers, donors, leaders and partners across Santa Barbara and Ventura counties are empowering others to be healthy, confident, connected and secure.
