Whereas, the YMCA of Pickens County lives its mission everyday, "To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind, and body for all"; and
Whereas, the YMCA movement in the United States serves nearly eighteen million members per year as an organization that is volunteer-founded, volunteer-based, and volunteer-led; and

Whereas, the YMCA of Pickens County is part of a national movement that serves nine million children per year, that is the nation's largest childcare provider, that currently serves one in ten teens, and that incorporates the values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility into all of its programs; and
