GRAND TRAVERSE BAY YMCA
2016 Impact Report

Thanks to you!

Did you know that the YMCA is credited with inventing
volleyball, basketball and racquetball? Or that the Y
was the first organization to offer English as a Second
Language (ESL) classes in America?

Did you know that the Y provided safe and affordable
housing? In fact, Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X
both stayed in YMCA housing at one point.

The Y has a rich history of many firsts, not just in American society, but in communities around the world.
Unfortunately, many people do not know about that history, or understand the Y’s core mission - to simply serve
the community.

It is a simple mission, yet very difficult. As an organization, we are constantly assessing the needs of the
community and serving as many people as possible, regardless of financial status, ethnicity or creed.

As you read through this report, you will find astounding facts, figures and stories about our impact in this
community; but we did not do it alone. In 2016, we collaborated with many local businesses and organizations to
harness the power of partnership, and we are thrilled with how many more people we were able to serve.

As we look to another year ahead, we are excited to be able to expand our work in the community and continue
to serve in a meaningful way.

Thank you for your continued support and involvement.

MMEEMMBBERESRHSIPHIP
AND GROWTH

We’re committed to serving as many
families in the Grand Traverse
region as we possibly can.

When we performed a SEER Analytics study in the spring of
2016 to find where our gaps were, and worked diligently to
target and address those we were underserving.

As part of our efforts, we revised and promoted our income-
based membership pricing. We added a calculator to our
website that allows users to discreetly find out what their Y
membership pricing would be based on their specific income,
family size and membership type.

At the Y, we believe everybody deserves a chance to be
healthy, regardless of financial means.

We serve 1 out of 5
people in the Grand

Traverse area.

Youth Development

At the Y, we are committed to nurturing potential
to help youth thrive. We surround each child with
developmental opportunities and experiences for

learning, enrichment and growth.

FIGHTING In America, 30% of children under
CHILDHOOD the age of 13 are obese. This
OBESITY
means a higher risk for childhood
disease and a lower chance for
an active lifestyle. We fight this
statistic through our monthly
programming and youth sports.

YOUTH SPORTS

Kids can play basketball, soccer, NFL flag football, Pop Warner football, and
lacrosse in fall, winter, spring and summer for new experiences all year round.

SUMMER CAMP

Summer camp is full of new experiences and adventures for
kids. Campers go on hikes, field trips, play gaga ball, build
projects, use their imagination, read, and hear from guests
like the Blue Angel pilots for non-stop educational fun.

TEACHING
LIFE-SAVING
SKILLS

Drowning is the second leading cause of death in kids ages
2-14 and 60% of drownings happen within just 10 feet of
safety. That’s unacceptable to us. We teach life-saving skills
in order to lower those statistics in Northern Michigan.

NEVER
STOP
PLAYING

According to the President’s Council on Fitness,
Sports & Nutrition, more than 80% of adults do not
meet the guidelines for both aerobic and muscle-
strengthening activities. We know that not everyone
likes traditional exercise, so we encourage people to get active
in any way that makes them happy. Thousands of adults have shown us that
playing is what makes them happy and keeps them engaged.
