About

Real Life

Since our founding in 1903, the Berkeley-Albany YMCA has applied our mission - to build health in spirit, mind and body - to ever-changing and diverse social issues. Our greatest strength as an organization has always been our ability to adapt to meet the changing needs of our community. Presently, we are focusing our energies on addressing the needs of our community caused by global warming, our nation's obesity crisis and the growing cost of education. In addition, we know from our long history that sustainability is the key to success, and to that end we have committed to pursue our mission in as green and sustainable way as possible.
