A Legacy of Leadership

By early 1900's, there were over 800 campus YMCA's around the country. Today there are only 11, including the YMCA at Virginia Tech. Only an excellent legacy of leadership has given our YMCA such staying power. The YMCA at Virginia Tech flourishes today, owing to the efforts of early leaders such as Paul Derring, the Reverend Al Payne, Emily Stuart, Barbara Michelson, and influential volunteer leaders like Lucy Lee Lancaster.

Our YMCA works to build leaders in Virginia Tech students, offering over 10 programs in which they can participate and gain valuable experience while contributing to their community. The YMCA at Virginia Tech’s programs help turn the students of today into the leaders of tomorrow; a convention that all started with a legacy of leadership that has remained consistent since the YMCA’s inception at Virginia Tech in 1873.

The YMCA also proudly serves over 27,000 community members of all walks of life through education programs, after-school children’s programs, tutoring, international services, our thrift shop, and other community services. Our YMCA works with the community, the town, the county, and the public school system to identify needs and incorporate volunteers into programs to address those needs. Because of this, our YMCA is here to stay, here to serve, and here to make a real difference.
