Our Focus

We focus our work in three main areas: nurturing the potential of kids and teens, helping people live healthier lives, and supporting our neighbors. We believe these areas are key to bringing about meaningful change and strengthening communities throughout the UAE

YOUTH DEVELOPMENT » At the YMCA SHARJAH , children and teens learn values and positive behaviors as they’re encouraged to explore their unique interests and gifts. This makes for confident kids today and contributing adults tomorrow.

HEALTHY LIVING » Being healthy goes beyond physical activity. Whole health extends to spirit, mind, and body. The YMCA SHARJAH is a place where you can achieve a healthy balance between all three. At the YMCA SHARJAH, it’s not about the activity you choose as much as it is about achieving a healthy balance.

SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY » We know that when we work as one, we move people and communities forward. That’s why the Sharjah YMCA is committed to providing support to our neighbors as well as opportunities for community members to give, join, or volunteer—all for the common good of making stronger communities throughout the UAE.
