Our Staff & Board of Directors

The board is responsible for the legal and ethical integrity of the Y, providing fiduciary oversight and philanthropic leadership, delivering cause-driven vision, selecting and supervising the CEO and advocating for the Y in our community.

The Marshall Area YMCA is a 501(c) (3) non-profit corporation which promotes youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.

For over 173 years Y’s have been strengthening the communities they serve.  In Marshall we are proud to work side-by-side with our neighbors to ensure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, have the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.  The generosity of the community is at the core of our existence and it is only through the support of our volunteers that we are able to give back to the community we serve.
