About Us

The Y is... 

Nurturing the potential of every child and teen

We believe that all kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve. That’s why, through the YMCA, millions of youth today are cultivating the values, skills and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health and educational achievement.

Improving our community’s health and well-being

Throughout Winona and the surrounding communities, the YMCA is a leading voice on health and well-being. The Y brings families closer   together, encourages good health and fosters connections through fitness, sports, fun and shared interests. As a result, nearly 4,000, adults and families are receiving the support, guidance and resources needed to achieve greater health and well-being for their spirit, mind and body. 

Giving back and providing support to our neighbors

The YMCA has been listening and responding to Winona’s needs for 129 years. Whether developing skills or emotional well-being, welcoming and connecting diverse demographic populations, or preventing chronic disease and building healthier communities, the Y fosters the care and respect all people need and deserve.
