       WE BUILD
The Tampa Metropolitan Area YMCA has deep roots in our community. We opened our doors in 1889, and since then have focused on strengthening Tampa Bay. It is a responsibility and an honor we don’t take lightly.
Our new Strategic Plan 2023-2026 has a focus to build on our history of impacting lives by serving as an inspiration for health and well-being for kids, families, seniors and all who live in Tampa Bay. We will meet every community and every individual, where they are, and help them reach their full potential. Furthermore, every member of our community will see the Tampa YMCA as a place where they belong. To attain this goal, we have identified the following strategic priorities:
      Advance Leadership Development
Recruit, engage, and retain excellent staff and volunteer leaders as part of our healthy work culture and environment, offering numerous opportunities for growth.
Grow Philanthropy
Position the Y as a vital community resource, powerfully communicating our organizational impact for greater influence and reach.
Elevate Membership Experience
Strengthen the connectedness and engagement of our members, helping all feel included and part of the Y.
Prepare Youth For Success
Enhance programming to meet critical community needs, with a special focus on mental well-being, drowning prevention, and programming to position youth for success in all stages of life.
Fill Critical Community Voids
Focus on increasing outreach to diverse communities to serve every zip code, ensuring the Y is prepared for growth, maintains excellence, and remains relevant to the neighborhoods we serve.
Enhance Our Family Centers
Expand and evolve our facility assets through renovations, upgrades, and new facilities
to best meet the needs of Tampa’s growing population.
With a commitment to three areas of impact - youth development, healthy living and social responsibility - the Y ensures everyone has access to what they need to learn, grow and thrive. The Y believes in identifying community needs – and then working toward solutions that create meaningful, lasting change.
As a top-rated 4-star charity, we serve our community by nurturing the potential of children and teens, promoting healthy living and fostering a sense of social responsibility. From quality out-of-school programming and life-saving drowning prevention lessons to values-based youth sports and engaging healthy activities for the entire family, the Y’s programming stays true to our mission to put Judeo-Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
This Annual Report captures how the Tampa YMCA strengthened our community in 2023, focusing on relevant initiatives that enhance and impact the lives of those we serve.
