Inclusion Statement

The Y believes that all people have the right to take an active role in the Y community through participation and/or contribution.

We will try to accomplish this by developing universally designed activities and opportunities. We believe people with varying abilities share a common healthy spirit. We are confident that our Y can strengthen the foundations of community through a commitment to both the value and practice of diversity. We recognize that inclusion is a process that will grow, develop and become more effective through the efforts of staff, volunteers, membership and the greater community.

Members and program participants who come to the Y with varying abilities are encouraged to contact the Inclusion Specialist to help identify opportunities that can be offered. It is the intent of the Y to include people of varying abilities to the extent that appropriate service and care can be provided.
