The mission of the North Central Florida YMCA is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all. This is done through programming where children interact with others from all backgrounds. These programs include aquatics, youth sports, childcare, teen leadership, wellness activities, afterschool programs and more. Through these programs they learn about respect, responsibility, caring, honesty, teamwork, adapting to change and life skills that will provide them with a solid foundation for success in life. By teaching and modeling the YMCA core values of honesty, respect, caring and responsibility, we make fundamental and positive differences in the lives of the children we serve.
