YMCA of Central Florida
Member of the Month

At Orlando, Inc., our members are the foundation to everything we do. Chamber Members that have exemplified their commitment, engagement and outstanding support of Orlando, Inc., and the community we serve, are nominated by the team at Orlando, Inc., for special recognition as our Member of the Month at Chamber Connect, MemberLink and in EveryMonday.


The YMCA of Central Florida is one of the area's largest nonprofits committed to strengthening communities across Orange, Seminole, Osceola, Brevard, Lake and Marion counties and the local communities it serves. It is a diverse organization of men, women and children joined by a shared commitment to Youth Development, Healthy Living and Social Responsibility. Each day 35,000 Central Florida residents are impacted by the Y when a mentor inspires a child, individuals make healthy choices and a community comes together for common good.

In 2013, this YMCA Association of over 1,800 employees across 6 Florida counties impacted over 235,000 residents and invested, during a challenging economy, $10.2 million in its local communities. The YMCA of Central Florida also provided $9.2 million in financial assistance to children and families, which supported lasting personal and social change.

"In my role as Director of Community Relations, it's my responsibility to connect the Y to the community and the community to the Y for greater awareness and engagement. Orlando, Inc. has provided opportunities for our staff to meet people from all over the region and helps keep us abreast of the priorities, trends and opportunities in the business, civic and independent sectors. The membership has also provided opportunities for our leadership to receive Leadership Orlando training. It's all about "linking" members together to make a positive difference in the city of Orlando. This type of exposure is priceless, " Secily Wilson, Director of Community Relations, YMCA of Central Florida.
