The Katy Area Y’s are a cause-driven organization that is for youth development, for healthy living, and for social responsibility. A strong community can only be achieved when we invest in our kids, our health and our neighbors.
• The Y is community-centered. For over 125 years, we've been listening and responding to our communities.
• The Y brings people together. All ages and backgrounds connect to bridge the gaps in community needs.
• The Y nurtures potential. We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.
• The Y has a local presence and global reach. We mobilize local communities to effect lasting, meaningful change.
At the Y, we’ve always known that positive change only comes about when we invest in our kids, our health and our neighbors. Our programs focus on youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility.
