SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE
The YMCA of Callaway County exists to strengthen the foundations of our community through Youth Development, Healthy Living and Social Responsibility.
We do it by teaching kids new skills that build self-confidence, character values and leadership. We do it by helping adults and families lead healthy lifestyles. We do it by connecting older adults to an active support network. We do it by providing outlets to give back to those in need. People engage with the Y on one level, but they soon find a deeper meaning to their activities and a connection to those around them. Ultimately, at its highest form, they feel compelled to volunteer, to give back and help others strengthen the entire community.
Here are just a few of the YMCA programs helping to strengthen the Callaway County area:
Teen Dance - March 13, 2020
Middle school students enrolled in Callaway County Schools get the chance to mingle and dance the night away at the beloved Y Teen Dances. Fridays in JANUARY, MARCH, OCTOBER & NOVEMBER.
22nd Annual Auction & Dinner- April 24, 2020
THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELED
This year’s event is set for April 24th, 2020, and includes dinner as well as a live and silent auction. As always, all proceeds benefit YMCA program & membership scholarships for families and children in need.
More than ever, support is needed for YMCA families! In 2019, over $19,000 in membership scholarships and over $6,000 in program assistance were provided for families and youth, making YMCA services accessible to over 1,100 individuals, who otherwise may not have been able to participate.
Thank you to all who supported the 21st Annual YMCA Auction & Dinner. We are grateful for your commitment to healthy living, youth development and social responsibility. More info HERE
