Art @ the Y
Art @ the Y seeks to engage the entire community in issues of social justice, international understanding, environmental activism, faith and cultural understanding through quality arts programming. It's always free and open to the public.
Bailey Scholars Program
Fred S. Bailey Scholarships Each year we award nearly $200,000 to undergraduate and graduate students with a strong record of leadership, scholarship, and a history of community service and volunteering.
Dump & Run
Dump & Run keeps over 30 tons of used, quality goods out of Champaign-Urbana’s dumpsters and landfills each year by making these available to students and community members through the Big Sale.
Education for All Scholarship
The Education For All Scholarship’s intended purpose is to fund undocumented community college/high school students, or community college/high school students who arrived in the U.S. as unaccompanied minors in their pursuit of higher education at Parkland College.
Friday Forum + Conversation Café
A weekly forum to learn about and discuss pressing public concerns while enjoying free lunch from the Y Eatery. The fall series is: Our Community in Action: Advancing Social Justice in Champaign Urbana and Beyond.
It seems like wherever you look, you’ll find stories and images of religious strife, hatred, and violence. We work to change the narrative around religious difference by inviting those of all faiths and none to develop shared understanding and act with common purpose.
New American Welcome Center
The New American Welcome Center is a program of the University YMCA and seeks to make Champaign County a place where all people can live, thrive and contribute.
Support Programs at the Y!
With your support we offer and champion a diverse set of programs and student organizations committed to social justice, environmental protection, interfaith cooperation and global engagement by fostering dialogue, reflection and action.
