   Welcome to the Channel Islands YMCA. We have been building strong kids, strong families, and strong communities since 1887. The Channel Islands YMCA is a non profit association of seven YMCA branches serving Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties. Our association of YMCA’s is one of over 960 YMCAs of the USA member associations. YMCA of the USA represents over 2,350 YMCA branches nation wide.

    At the YMCA we have determined that there are six key values, or pillars, leading to a strong foundation for good character; Caring, Citizenship, Fairness, Respect, Responsibility, Trustworthiness. At the YMCA good character and values are an important part of everything we do. By teaching, enforcing, advocating, and modeling the six pillars of character, we build strong kids, strong families, and a stronger community for all.
    Our financial assistance policies ensure that no one is turned away for reasons of inability to pay. Each branch has financial assistance policies that allow us to work with community members to the best of our ability in order to continue to provide our services and programs to all who are interested, regardless of financial status.
    Charitable donations to the YMCA make a positive and profound impact to many individuals and families in our community. It is through these donations that we are able to continue to offer our services to many who face a variety of financial hardships. Gifts may be directed to benefit the overall work of the Channel Islands YMCA, or can be designated to support a particular branch or program.
