Española YMCA Teen Center
Teen Technology & Recreation Center
Our Purpose and Mission:
The Family YMCA is a charitable, community-serving organization that promotes values, leadership development, service-learning, community interaction, healthy life choices and active lifestyles.
Due to the relative isolation of the community, people felt there was a need for a place where families could do things together. Subsequently, through an Act of Congress, the Los Alamos chapter became the first ''Family'' YMCA.
We are led by a volunteer board of directors and an executive director.
The mission of our organization is to strengthen the foundations of community by engaging in partnerships for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.
Our driving vision is to provide the best facilities and programs that will support total community wellness.
Our purpose is to engage partners in our communities to promote healthy life choices and to support community well-being beyond our facilieies.
Our goals are to provide quality programs and critical services that meet the needs of the communities we serve.
Our core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility are stressed in all programming and interactions.
Our main facility is housed in an 18,000 square foot building.
Our primary services include youth, family and community programming; after school and summer camp programs, a wellness facility in Los Alamos; and teen recreational and academic programming in Española and Los Alamos.
We serve 3,200 facility members and 5,200 program members.
Our annual budget is $2.3 million dollars.
