In 1866 George W. Frost, a Union Pacific purchasing agent, led a small group to form the YMCA Association in Omaha. The work of the YMCA is based on Christian principles shared by all faiths and practiced each day in YMCA’s across the United States and in 130 countries around the world. Forever mission-drive, Ys exist to mold the kind of people who care about each other, who are firm in their own sense of worth and that of others, who try to foster understanding and respect, who take responsibility for their own life and help improve the lives of others. Through program activities, participants are exposed to our four core values: honesty, respect, responsibility, and caring. These values are part of daily life at the YMCA.
