Social Responsibility

The Mesabi Family YMCA has been listening to and responding to the needs of the Iron Range for the last 33 years. We develop skills through education and training. We build proactive, healthier communities through collaborations with area businesses and agencies with like-minded goals. We provide opportunities for people to give back and enrich our community through volunteering, mentoring, fundraising and coaching. Our volunteers, donors, leaders and and partners are empowering the people in our community to be healthy and confident, connected and secure.


We know that when we work as one, we can move forward. That’s why we are committed to providing support to our neighbors and opportunities for kids, adults, and families to learn, grow and thrive. We collaborate with policymakers, community leaders and private and public organizations to develop youth, prevent chronic disease and build healthier communities and encourage social responsibility.


The generosity of others is at the core of our existence. It is only through the support of our volunteers and public and private donors that we are able to give back to the communities we serve on the Iron Range.
When you give to the Y, you strengthen our community and move us all forward. As the nation’s leading nonprofit for youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility, the Y uses your gift to make a meaningful, enduring impact right in our own backyard. Learn more about giving to the Y.
