YMCA BRAND REVITALIZATION
For the first time in 43 years, the Y is unveiling a new brand strategy to increase understanding of the impact our organization makes in the community, so that more people take advantage of the YMCA’s unique capacity to foster lasting personal and social change.
The Y is about changing lives for the better. We view participation in our programs and services as a means to a greater end. Therefore, through our rebranding effort, we want to help our communities learn more about our work so we can help our communities learn and grow.
