Mission Statement The mission of the YMCA is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
Background Statement
The Paris-Bourbon County YMCA has served our community since opening its doors in 1915. The YMCA has provided a nurturing, safe environment in which children have grown, adults have gained health and families have found support.  We are guided by a philosophy to serve all people regardless of their financial wherewithal or life circumstance.  And, we are committed to the continuance of strong programs and accessible facilities that support the healthy development of people of all ages and abilities.
The Paris-Bourbon County YMCA is the hub of our Central Kentucky community. We offer the only recreational facility in Bourbon County, serving more than 4,000 members and more than 1,000 program participants. Our YMCA has both an indoor and outdoor pool (the only outdoor community pool in Bourbon County); a Child Development Center that provides care to infants through pre-school children; an after-school program for students in kindergarten through fifth grade, and a wonderful facility that provides healthy living programs for all ages.

Without the Paris-Bourbon County Y, our community would have a significant void. The impact of our small town Y is so substantial because we give our residents a place where they can exercise, learn to swim, bring their children for care or recreation in a safe and nurturing environment, and interact with their friends and neighbors. 

Impact Statement The Paris-Bourbon County YMCA is committed to ensuring every child will deepen positive values, their commitment to service and their motivation to learn; every family will build stronger bonds, achieve greater work/life balance and become engaged with their communities; every individual will strengthen his or her holistic health; and every community will be positively influenced by the YMCA's leadership, collaboration and resources.

Description The Paris-Bourbon County YMCA's most effective way to strengthen relationships and member involvement is by engaging members at all levels and all ages. The Y provides opportunities beyond individual and family activities for members to become involved, volunteer and lead at the Y. The Y engages members to move from a casual member, to a volunteer and to a supporter for the Y. We do this by engaging them with other members and programs and through staff involvement. The Y is inclusive of membership by providing access to all regardless of ability, age, ethnicity/race, religion, sexual orientation or income level. We provide financial assistance that makes the Y accessible and affordable to all. Membership development is relationship-based and focused on engaging members as whole persons and providing personalized experiences in a supportive, uplifting environment.

Description Aquatic programming has long been a mainstay in building
healthy spirit, mind and body for children and adults. The YMCA’s aquatic
programs provide opportunities for holistic health and well-being often with a
focus on health seekers and their families.  Our YMCA has the only pool in our community and we open our outdoor pool to anyone who wants to participate. We also allow the high school swim teams and the Special Olympic swim team to use our pools at no cost.

Description Through our licensed pre-school and after-school centers, the Y is a champion in the holistic development of children and youth. Our pre-school operates for 12 hours a day in a safe, nurturing environment where children are prepared for later school success. The Y collaborates with the United Way and the Child Care Council to ensure our staff are trained and certified. Our commitment to quality includes participation in the Governor Starts for Kids Now initiative. Our after-school program provides care throughout the school year and all day care for children during snow days, holiday breaks and early school dismissals. Our character-driven program helps children develop moral and ethical behavior and builds self-esteem. The Y summer camp program offers adventure and learning activities that provide challenge, education, and promote spiritual awareness, mental development, physical well being, social growth and self-respect. Our camp is open to all regardless of ability to pay.

Description The Paris-Bourbon County YMCA addresses the most pressing challenges of the diverse population we serve. We do this by providing a broad range of accessible, effective and quality programs to address a variety of ongoing and emerging individual and community needs. All of these programs are anchored in the Y's philosophy of personal growth in spirit, mind and body. Building upon our charitable heritage, financial assistance ensures those who need the Y most -- from all backgrounds and income levels -- are able to benefit. The majority of adults who join the Y do so because they wish to participate in some form of exercise. In 2009, our Y became a part of the Pioneering Healthier Communities initiative, which collaborates with other community organizations to make policy and environmental changes so that our community becomes a healthier place to live. Our focus is on childhood obesity, addressing Kentucky's 5th-place ranking in our nation for having a high prevalence of overweight and obese children.
Budget 24315
Description Building strong kids means supporting and empowering children to develop the values and skills they will carry with them throughout life. Those who are ingrained with strong values become leaders in our communities. Our youth sports include soccer, basketball, flag football, volleyball and gymnastics. Volunteer development is key in our team sports. All of our volunteer coaches and parents sign a code of conduct agreeing to be respectful of all. The Y offers a variety of free community-wide activities. At our Healthy Kids Day, children and their families enjoy games, activities and healthy snacks. In 2009, the Y began its Therapeutic Recreation programs for individuals with mental and physical disabilities. We serve individuals ranging from 4 years through young adult. They participate in swimming, gymnastics, fitness classes, after-school care and summer day camp. This program is funded through a foundation grant with the goal of becoming self-supporting in the years to come.
