Take Action

Join the Advocates Action Network


When you advocate with the Y, you take an active role in creating meaningful change for your community.  As a Y advocate, you receive alerts with turnkey language and resources when your advocacy support is critically needed.

Join us to influence policies that help youth develop healthy behaviors, values  and life skills; prevent and combat chronic disease, and support wellness; and build understanding among community groups and decision-makers.

Register to Vote


Registering to vote is an important first step in civic engagement and a meaningful way for people to connect to their communities. Voting is associated with a host of positive benefits for both community members and nonprofit organizations like the Y.

Voters are more likely to volunteer, contact their elected officials, and stay informed about local affairs. Voting also helps strengthen social ties and improves health.
