Board of Directors

For more than 40 years, the YMCA of Coastal Carolina has strengthened the foundations of the Grand Strand community we serve. We’re proud of our diverse population, and are passionate about keeping our promise to be a force for good. 

We serve people from all walks of life in Horry and Georgetown Counties through YMCA memberships and programs.

The YMCA of Coastal Carolina is a 501(c)3 nonprofit governed by a local board of volunteer directors.
