YMCA of Southeastern North Carolina

Welcome To The Y

We are an inclusive non-profit organization of men, women and children joined together by a shared commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living and fostering a sense of social responsibility. At the Y, people from all backgrounds build connections through fitness, sports and shared interests. 


The YMCA of Southeastern NC is a non-profit association committed to a mission of putting Christian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all.


At the Y, strengthening community is our cause. Every day, the YMCA of Southeastern North Carolina works to support the people and neighborhoods that need it most through community programs, services and outreach - such as providing safe and supportive environments for children and teens during out of school time, offering inclusive programming to help individuals with developmental and physical disabilities become more confident, connected and independent, and providing the community with outreach programs like Swim for Life and LIVESTRONG at the YMCA. Through our Annual Giving Campaign, the Y is able to provide financial assistance opportunities for children, families and individuals to participate in Y membership, programs and services. Donations to the Y will help young people achieve their potential, empower people of all ages to lead healthier lives, and strengthen the bonds of community in the Wilmington area.
