Cause profile

The Young Men's Christian Association (commonly known as YMCA or simply the Y) is a worldwide organization. Our main motto is to: "Empowering young people for Life, Leadership and Service."

We believe the values and skills learned early on in life are vital building blocks for the future and because of the Y, more young people in neighborhoods around the nation are taking a greater interest in learning and making smarter life choices. At the Y, children and teens learn values and importance of positive behavior, and can explore their unique talents and interests, helping them realize their potential.

At the Cape Flats YMCA we believe that confident kids today create contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.

Our Vision: The Cape Flats YMCA will enable the youth in the community it serves through development and an empowerment to become agents of positive change.

Our Mission: To fulfill our vision we endeavor to develop awareness , preventative and support programs for our children and teens.
