Throughout the DeKalb County Community, countless people know the Y, but there’s so much more to our Y than one might think. From exercise to education, from volleyball to volunteerism, from preschool to preventative health, the Y doesn’t just strengthen our bodies, it strengthens our community. The Y is so much more than a gym. It’s a cause dedicated to youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. Discover how we’ve helped our neighbors learn, grow and thrive. Together, we’ll take on many of the greatest challenges facing our young people, our health and our community. Everyone has a role to play. Together, we can achieve so much more.
