Our Mission:The YMCA of Honolulu is a fellowship dedicated to putting Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
Our Areas of Focus:
Our Core Values:
The YMCA's core values serve as the foundation for YMCA of USA character-development resources. The YMCA of the Honolulu strives to incorporate the four core values into all of its programs, activities, and interpersonal interactions taking place at YMCA branches.
- Caring: to demonstrate a sincere concern for others, for their needs and well-being
- Honesty: to tell the truth, to demonstrate reliability and trustworthiness through actions that are in keeping with my stated positions and beliefs.
- Respect: to treat others as I would want them to treat me, to value the worth of every person, including myself.
- Responsibility: to do what is right--what I ought to do, to be accountable for my choices of behavior and actions and my promises.
Cause-Driven Organization:Inclusive and diverse. Our mission calls us to build healthy spirit, mind, and body for all. We welcome all people regardless of age, race, ethnic heritage, mental or physical ability, gender, sexual orientation, work background, marital status, military experience, religious beliefs, education, income, parental status, or geographic location.
Accessible to everyone regardless of their ability to pay. We will do our best to make sure that nobody is turned away solely because of their inability to pay. We will seek contributions from the community so that we can provide financial assistance to those who lack the resources to pay for our programs.
Focused on long-term, lifetime relationships. To improve, change, and save lives, we seek to link up with people and work with them throughout their lives. Long-term relationships make it possible for us to have a lasting, positive impact on our members and participants.
An example of sharing and caring. We seek to be an example of sharing and caring that will inspire others in our community to share and care also.
