Statements
Mission Statement The Kentucky YMCA Youth Association develops engaged citizens and servant leaders inspired to affect change in their school, community, Commonwealth, nation, and world. Through experiential learning, service, and community activism, the Kentucky YMCA Youth Association fosters critical thinking, leadership, and social responsibility in teens.
Background Statement The Kentucky YMCA programs are part of a national civics education movement in which students are exposed to the process of state, national, and international governance.  Students who are inspired to become more active citizens are trained to develop their leadership skills, and then given the exposure and experience they need to be effective in the real world.  The Y actively seeks to develop a lively and respectful civic discourse and an ethic of servant leadership in its participants and in the broader culture.
Impact Statement Participants in the Kentucky YMCA's programs are more confident, knowledgeable about issues, able to think critically, empathetic, comfortable speaking in public, and willing to express an opinion. This impact will be seen in behavior change and will impact school success as well as college and career readiness. Later in life they are more likely to vote, participate in service activities, participate in political activities, contribute to their families and communities, go to college, and study abroad.

CEO/Executive Director Statement
The Y has been a powerful force in developing leadership in the state of Kentucky for more than 125 years. The litany of current political, cultural, and business leaders who have come out of our program over the years speaks volumes about our impact. However, beyond the big names, we are proud of the thousands of our graduates who are having impact outside of the spotlight in towns and communities throughout the Commonwealth and around the world. We are actively expanding our programs into traditionally marginalized communities, both urban and rural, with a goal of giving a voice to the voiceless and developing socially responsible servant leadership in all parts of our community.  The support of our Board of Directors and our programs enable us to dedicate 100% of all donations directly to supporting those efforts. We invite you to join us in helping the youth of Kentucky to develop into the kinds of leaders we all want them to be.

Description The Kentucky Youth Assembly is a three-day experiential learning conference in which students participate directly in a simulation of the Commonwealth's democratic process. Acting as Senators and Representatives, students write, debate, and vote on legislation that affects them. As candidates, lobbyists, or members of the media, students experience the rich spectrum of activity that constitutes our political process. As advocates and justices, students argue and judge a contemporary legal case in the actual Kentucky Supreme Court chambers. Officers elected by students serve as Governor, Speaker of the House, President of the Senate, and are appointed to other conference leadership positions. During the entire process students are supported by YMCA professionals, advisers, alumni, and parent volunteers. KYA offers students the opportunity to learn about a wide variety of issues, develop critical thinking skills, and articulate their beliefs while engaging constructively with those who hold like and opposing views.

Through in-depth guided discussion, small group activities and team building, teens hone leadership skills and explore their own values away from the pressures of their daily lives.

Description Y-Corps is an intensive service-learning program for teens and young adults inspired to affect positive change in the world around them. Participants are given a forum for the practical application of the skills they develop in our simulation and leadership training programs. For an entire year, Y-Corps participants engage in community outreach, service and fundraising events, and develop professional advocacy skills they will use throughout their lives. This year of outreach culminates in a series of service trips throughout Kentucky, the southern United States, and the world. Participants build indelible bonds with teammates through the shared experience of both the needs and the unique cultural identities of the communities they serve. The Y partners with a variety of organizations to help students discover how to best use their skills, talents, and interests as socially responsible servant leaders. Through hard work, cultural immersion, self-discovery and reflection, Y-Corps extends the mission of the Y into communities throughout the Commonwealth and beyond.
