Advocacy · YMCA of the East Bay

Our experience and strong relationships in neighborhoods across the East Bay mean that we are able to organize grassroots efforts and engage our communities around a range of social issues, including child welfare, education and public health.

Through advocacy at the local, state and federal levels, the Y is able to influence public policy and is:

  • Bringing families safe and affordable child care and afterschool options.
  • Making healthy choices available in communities to help prevent chronic disease.
  • Ensuring that Ys have the ability to be a resource for healthy living, youth development and social responsibility in the communities they serve.

Join us - we could use someone like you.
