Getting Ready for Summer!

The YMCA of San Diego County is currently offline for maintenance, including transactions and account actions.

Certifications for Forging Better Leaders

The YMCA requires strong cause-driven leadership to effect lasting personal and social change.

This means leaders are strong in nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living, and fostering a sense of social responsibility. We must prepare the next generation of Y leaders by encouraging and rewarding a commitment to professional development and lifelong learning.

Certifications signify an individual’s knowledge and skill development in areas critical to the Y’s success.
