Awards and Impact

The purpose of NAYDO is to lead, support, and advance the development of YMCA professionals, volunteers, and YMCA associations in the philanthropic work of their YMCA through training, education, advocacy, research and knowledge sharing. 

Recognition is one way we accomplish that purpose, lifting up innovative and effective strategies from across North America and celebrating successes with our peers.
