Lynchburg City Schools

The YMCA of Central Virginia has a long-standing partnership with the Lynchburg City School System in several youth-serving areas. We work closely with the school system to evaluate and address the needs of the families and youth in our community. As the needs of our community evolve and change over time, so does our partnership.

Swim to Work 



The YMCA's partnership with IronLives aims to ensure all kids, especially those facing challenges and barriers beyond their control, receive un-gated access to vital tools and resources, increasing their odds to a brighter future and setting them on a path to reaching their full potential.

Swim to Work



The YMCA of Central Virginia is an active member of the Lynchburg Area Youth Sports Initiative. Along with approximately thirty other community-focused organizations, we are working to end the paywall that is a proven barrier keeping kids from playing organized youth sports. We aim to bring sports to all kids through annual play days, school days off sports clinics, a donor-funded sports locker, and community engagement.
