Serve. Learn. Grow.

Columbus is a diverse city with many exceptional people and neighborhoods. However, each community has its challenges and areas that need some level of improvement. In recognizing this, the YMCA of Central Ohio is meeting people where help is needed most: within their communities. That’s why the YMCA Community Corps is serving in both the Hilltop and Linden areas of Columbus.
