Togetherhood® is the Y’s member-led volunteer service program to strengthen community. The program aims to deliver lasting social change by addressing the social isolation, disconnectedness and lack of civic engagement found in communities across the U.S. Through Togetherhood, Y members from all backgrounds work with their neighbors and community partners to plan and lead volunteer service projects that respond to a need in the community where they live. By working together in small groups, Y members forge new friendships and improve their own wellbeing while meeting local needs. Launched in 2013, Togetherhood is YMCA of the USA’s Signature Program for Social Responsibility.
