Group ShotGiving Back and Providing Support to Our Neighbors

We know that when we work as one, we move people and communities forward.The generosity of others is at the core of the Y’s existence as a nonprofit.That's why we are committed to providing support to our neighbors and opportunities for kids, adults and families to give, join in or advocate in the name of stronger communities.

Community Events

At the Y, building a strong community begins at home. Ys in the East Bay help young people develop cultural competencies, diverse populations connect to the community, and individuals gain access to life-changing resources and support. As an interconnected community network, the Y has the resources and solutions to build bridges and make our changing communities stronger.

Volunteerism and Giving

The generosity of others is at the core of our existence. It is only through the support of our thousands of volunteers and public and private donors that we are able to give back to the communities we serve.
