Our Story is Your Story.

Immigration to Innovation

From its early days, the Y’s mission was to “meet the young stranger” and surround him with good influences. In 1869 in Honolulu, “strangers” included newcomers, plantation laborers, and youth living in O‘ahu’s most isolated communities. 150 years later, the Y continues to provide lasting personal and social change by providing innovative, collaborative and effective solutions.

The Y is for everyone

At the Y, children realize their potential, families are strengthened, people are empowered to be healthier in mind, spirit, and body. Here, all are welcomed embraced and supported.
