The YMCA adopted the 4 characters of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility. By reinforcing good character values, the YMCA is shaping, instilling, and reinforcing Christian values that schools, churches, corporations, and communities can build on. Character is not something one can perfect overnight. Character is shaped, molded, and developed continually. True character takes a lifetime to achieve.

YMCA Character Values:

Caring: to demonstrate a sincere concern for others, for their needs and well-being. Related values: compassion, forgiveness, generosity, and kindness.
Honesty: to tell the truth, to demonstrate reliability and trustworthiness through actions that are in keeping with my stated positions and beliefs. Related values: integrity and fairness.
Respect: to treat others as I would want them to treat me, to value the worth of every person, including myself. Related values: acceptance, empathy, self-respect, and tolerance.
Responsibility: to do what is right–what I ought to do, to be accountable for my choices of behavior and actions and my promises. Related values: commitment, courage, good health, service, and citizenship.
