OUR COMMITMENT TO
EQUITY, DIVERSITY, AND INCLUSION
The YMCA of Coastal Carolina is made up of a mosaic of people in Georgetown and Horry counties. Our mission is “To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind, and body FOR ALL”. When we say FOR ALL, we affirm that regardless of ability, age, cultural background, ethnicity, faith, gender, gender identity, ideology, income, national origin, race, sexual orientation, and any and all other dimensions of diversity, has the opportunity to reach their God given potential with dignity at the Y.
Keeping in line with the YMCA core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility, the YMCA of Coastal Carolina stands boldly with others in denouncing prejudice, racism, sexism, heterosexism, ableism, ageism, bigotry, intolerance, and all other forms of discrimination.
Our organization will never stop exploring ways to become more equitable, diverse and inclusive as a wellness center, childcare provider, employer, charity and community cornerstone. We will continually seek to build into operations equity, diversity and inclusion. We believe that embracing these three guiding principles as an organization is a pathway to intentionally creating space for positive outcomes to flourish.
As we face challenges in and with this work, the Y will remain diligent to ensure that the marginalized are given boundless opportunities to thrive within our organization. The YMCA of Coastal Carolina will be a beacon of hope.
