Orion is proud to announce the YMCA as the August focus of our Orion Gives Back program.
It has been over 150 years since the Memphis YMCA first opened. Currently, they have 8 full facility branches and 3 program branches that serve all ages and segments of the Memphis community.
At the Y, strengthening community is their cause. Every day, they’re committed to youth development, healthy living and social responsibility and work to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.
The Y believes all kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they really are and what they can achieve. Through them, millions of youth are cultivating the values, skills and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health and educational achievement.
Across the nation, the Y is a leading voice on health and well-being. With a mission centered on balance, the Y brings families closer together, encourages good health and fosters connections through fitness, sports, fun and shared interests. As a result, millions of youth, adults and families are receiving the support, guidance and resources needed to achieve greater health and well-being for their spirit, mind and body.
Whether developing skills or emotional well-being through education and training, welcoming and connecting diverse the demographic populations through global services, or preventing chronic disease and building healthier communities through collaborations with policymakers, the Y fosters the care and respect all people need and deserve.
