Support the Y, Better Your Community

Since 1971, our focus has been in child care, fitness, sports, aquatics, youth, families and seniors and the Altavista Arts Council. The Altavista Arts Council promotes and develops artistic and cultural programs for youth and adults in the community, and with providing coordinated methods of support for such programs monthly book club, melody makers for children in our child development program, movie nights, senior bus trips, performances and more.

The Y has the long-standing track record and on-the-ground presence necessary to address the nation’s most pressing social issues related to youth, health and community life. The Y has distributed food to our neighbors in need, held a shoe and school supply drive for local students, back to school haircuts for kids, teen nights, community health fairs, workshops and much more.
