Our Plan:

The Rogue Valley Family YMCA has a rich history of improving the lives of youth, families and older adults.  We are completing a deliberate effort of remodeling the facility and strengthening our partnerships.  We now enter a creative phase of expanding our youth development programs,  improving health outcomes for our members, continuing our facility improvements and becoming known for changing people’s lives with measurable results.  To learn more about our plan check out the 2016-2018 Strategic Plan.

Our Goals:

1. Staff and volunteer development.  We will recruit additional volunteers, provide additional benefits for part-time employees, give annual increases, and celebrate and recognize staff teams.

2. Program growth and capacity.  We will strengthen youth development partnerships, strengthen wellness partnerships, focus on developing our existing aquatic programs, and improve data collection.

3. Population Health Management.  We will secure additional funding to continue programs, expand partnerships and agreements, and continue to be open and available to inquiries.

4. Facility Improvements.  We will continue remodeling, expand programming and facilities in Eagle Point, conduct a feasibility study and make a long-term facility plan, and grow the facility and operating reserve.
