Background Statement

As the nation’s leading nonprofit committed to helping people and communities to learn, grow and thrive, our contributions are both far-reaching and intimate- from influencing our nation’s culture during times of profound social change to the individual support we provide families and adults every day.

For more than 160 years, YMCAs have been at the heart of community life in neighborhoods and towns across the nation, We have the presence and partnerships to not just promise, but deliver positive change. Generally, a volunteer board sets policy for its executive, who manages the operation with full-time and part-time staff and volunteer leaders. Ys meet local community needs through organized activities called programs. These programs are tools for building the values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. Longtime leaders in community-based health and fitness and aquatics, Ys teach kids to swim, offer exercise including child care (the Y movement is the nation’s largest non-for-profit provider), youth sports and much more.

Each YMCA is a charitable nonprofit, qualifying under Section 501 (c)(3) of the U.S. Tax Code. Each is independent. YMCAs are required by the national constitution to pay annual dues, to refrain from discrimination and to support the YMCA Mission.

Since 1969 the Charlotte County Family YMCA has been providing programs and services to the Charlotte County Area and the City of North Port. Our programs include childcare for infants through 13 years of age, aquatic instruction for all ages, fitness/wellness opportunities for all ages, youth sports that includes soccer, t-ball, flag football and basketball, summer day camps, active older adult programs and many more programs and events.

Statement from the Board Chair/Board President
We believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for life.  Because of the Y, more young people are taking a greater interest in learning and making smarter life choices.  At the Y, children and teens learn values and positive behaviors, and can explore their unique talents and interests, helping them realize their potential.  Programs that bring talents and opportunities to the forefront are:
  • Infant Care, Pre-School, VPK
  • Before/After School Care
  • Camp
  • Youth Sports Programs (Soccer, Basketball, T-Ball, Tennis, Sailing, Cheer, Flag Football)
  • Aquatic Programs (swim lessons, swim team)

Short Term Success
All kids have great potential. At the Y, a leading nonprofit strengthening community through youth development, we work every day to help them set and achieve personal and educational goals. Millions of children and teens build skills and confidence as they explore new interests and passions at through the Y. Leadership and academic enrichment programs such as tutoring, Achievers Clubs, Youth and Government and college preparation, make sure that every child has an opportunity to envision and pursue the best possible future.
Long Term Success The Y is the starting point for many youth to learn about becoming and staying active, and developing healthy habits they’ll carry with them throughout their lives. And the benefits are far greater than just physical health. Whether it’s gaining the confidence that comes from learning to swim or building the positive relationships that lead to good sportsmanship and teamwork, participating in sports at the Y is about building the whole child, from the inside out.
Program Success Monitoring
For Youth Sports, we survey coaches at the end of each season and rate players to evenly distribute them for the next season.  For Summer Camp, we've adopted a Character Bound curriculum which evaluates the campers weekly on kindness, integrity and citizenship.  Child care students are given assessments on fine and gross motor skills as well as social skills.
Program Success Examples
Child Care: Sydney participated in our VPK Program at our Edgewater branch and passed her Kindergarten assessment with flying colors.  They asked where she went to VPK!  Her mother was very proud of her daughter's progress.
Camp: Amy has underdeveloped limbs and attended our Character Camp by the Bay.  She learned how to do things she never thought possible including kayaking and going up our climbing tower.  She was also one of the only campers to earn every singly Character Bound award.
Sports: Robert participated in our soccer program at our Franz Ross Park YMCA branch and his father reported a remarkable difference in his confidence.  Robert can't wait to participate in soccer the next season!
Being healthy means more than simply being physically active,  It's about maintaining a balanced spirit, mind and body.  The Y is a place where you can work toward that balance by challenging yourself to learn a new skill or hobby, fostering connections with friends through our lifelong learning programs, or bringing your loved ones closer together through our many family-centered activities.  Opportunities for people to find that balance include:
  • Family Time Programs (Special Events, Family Sailing)
  • Health & Wellness (Group Exercise, Personal Training, Tennis, Massage Therapy)
  • Adult Sports & Recreation (Master's Swimming, Swim Lessons)
  • Group Interests (Wellness Seminars, Community Gatherings)

Short Term Success Serving families has always been at the heart of the Y. We are a place where they can find respite from social, economic and educational challenges, and learn how to overcome them. We have a fundamental desire to provide opportunities for every family to build stronger bonds, achieve greater work/life balance, and become more engaged with their communities.
Long Term Success Because we know that healthy lifestyles are achieved through nurturing mind, body and spirit, well-being and fitness at the Y is so much more than just working out. Beyond fitness facilities, we provide educational programs to promote healthier decisions, and offer a variety of programs that support physical, intellectual and spiritual strength.
Program Success Monitoring
We monitor our membership retention rates and program participation and adjust what we are doing if we see the numbers getting lower.  We also have friendly welcome center staff and wellness staff who communicate with our members on a regular basis to get feedback.
Program Success Examples
Jen is a nurse who lost 50lbs working with one of our Personal Trainers, Quinten, at our Franz Ross Park YMCA branch.  They did a combination of strength training, TRX, and aerobic training. Jen lowered her cholesterol and blood pressure so much that she no longer needed to take medication for it.
The generosity of others is at the core of the Y's existence as a nonprofit.  We engage YMCA members and volunteers in activities that strengthen our community and pave the way for future generations to thrive.
  • Global Services (Special Events, including community outreach events and participation)
  • Volunteerism & Giving (Scholarships and program support)

Short Term Success The generosity of others is at the core of our existence. It is only through the support of our hundreds of thousands of volunteers and public and private donors that we are able to give back to the communities we serve.
Long Term Success

At the Y, building a strong global community begins at home. Ys in the U.S. help young people develop cultural competencies, diverse populations connect to the community and individuals around the world gain access to life-changing resources and support. As an interconnected global network, the Y has the resources and solutions to build bridges and make our changing communities stronger—both at home and abroad.

Program Success Monitoring
We interview all of our financial assistance recipients every 6 months to see where are they are at financially and adjust their scholarship accordingly.
