YMCA of Silicon Valley has been listening and responding to the most critical social needs in our community for over 150 years. 

We provide programs and services to strengthen the foundations of our community. We bring people together to nurture the potential of children and teens, improve our communities' health and well-being, and create opportunities to give back. We welcome and serve people from all backgrounds, ages, capabilities and income levels, providing financial assistance to those in need, mirroring and celebrating the diversity of Silicon Valley. 

Our core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility guide us in our endeavor to strengthen community in the areas of youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility.

We help people find a place to belong, a passion to pursue, and a path towards helping others. Join our cause and make a difference.


Diwali is a popular festival of Hinduism celebrated between November 12th to November 16th with the main day on November 14th. Diwali is a “festival of lights” which celebrates the triumph of light over a dark and good over evil. The festival gets its name from the row (avail) of clay lamps (deepa) which are lit outside of households symbolizes “the inner light that protects from spiritual darkness.”
It's important to celebrate as a community, for occasions big and small! Join us in Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) celebrations, from October 31st through November 2nd. Wether you are using one of our family fun activities, or celebrating in your own way, share your joy with us by posting online, with #YDCelebrates.
