The mission of the Y is "To Put Christian Principles into Practice through Programs that Build a Healthy Spirit, Mind, and Body for All."
We at the Y do not turn away individuals due to the inability to pay. Thanks to the generous support of Y Donors we are able to extend financial scholarships to individuals and families who need a little help to participate in Y Membership or Programs.
In an effort to help feed the hungry children in our community, the Y has partnered with local churches to provide backpacks filled with healthy foods to needy children in our schools. The Y currently provides backpacks for 40 children from Oakboro Elementary each week. This program is made possible through the Strong Communities Fund and Wal-Mart.

Second Grade Learn to Swim Program
The Y proudly partners with the Stanly County Schools and Alcoa Foundation to provide the 2nd Grade Learn to Swim Program to 2nd graders across the county. Currently serving nine schools this year, the Y will teach over 450 students how to swim this school year! This program is brought to our community through the support of the Strong Communities Fund, Alcoa Foundation, and the Smith William Snuggs Endowment.
