Mission and Service

The Glacial Community Y decided in 2017 to take our mission international by forming partnerships in which we could offer support, resources, and volunteer hours to help strengthen our core values here, and share those with organizations around the world. To date, we have partnerships with Esperanza Viva, a Christian youth home and orphanage in Puebla, Mexico, and with the YMCA of Valparaiso, Chile.
