About the Y

Elkins Randolph County YMCA

The Elkins-Randolph County YMCA is dedicated to improving the lives of community members in our seven-county region of central West Virginia. Together we work to ensure everyone, regardless of ability, age, cultural background, ethnicity, faith, gender, gender identity, income, race, or sexual orientation has the opportunity to reach their potential through participation in quality programs, classes and activities that will help enhance their lives. Our core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility guide everything we do.

Together, the nation's more than 2,500 YMCAs are the largest not-for-profit service organization in America.

We strive to meet the health and social needs of 18.9 million men, women and children in 10,000 communities in the United States.

YMCAs are for people of all faiths, races, abilities, ages and incomes.


We know that lasting personal and social change comes about when we all work together. That’s why, at the Y, strengthening community is our cause. Every day, we work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. 


The Y is a nonprofit like no other. That’s because we have the presence and partnerships to not just promise, but deliver, positive change. 

  • The Y is community centered. For over 100 years, we’ve been listening and responding to our community.

  • The Y brings people together. We connect people of all ages and backgrounds to bridge the gaps in community needs.

  • The Y nurtures potential. We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.


With a mission to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all, our impact is felt when an individual makes a healthy choice, when a mentor inspires a child and when a community comes together for the common good. The Y: we're for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.
