Recognizing each corporate YMCA in Indiana is autonomous, the Alliance pursues and seeks opportunities for Indiana YMCAs to work in a coordinated fashion together and with other entities in the state and/or their community. To support Indiana YMCAs, the strategic plan of the Alliance focuses our work in four areas:
- ACTIVE ADVOCACY - The Alliance supports Indiana Ys by fostering proactive advocacy to shape public policy and drive perception.
- SUPPORTIVE INITIATIVES - The Alliance supports Indiana Ys by capitalizing on what local Ys are already doing, creating new opportunities for impact, positioning Ys (together) to be a player on the state’s most important issues, and leveraging our collective impact efforts thus producing long-term financial sustainability and public trust.
- ONGOING LEARNING - The Alliance supports Indiana Ys through networking, providing opportunities for peer-to-peer learning, and encouraging ongoing professional development of Y professionals and volunteers.
- STRATEGIC CONSULTING - The Alliance supports and counsels Indiana's YMCA CEOs and Boards of Directors on issues of high importance.
