In 1990, Mayor Bob Breeding and Vice Mayor Margaret Pearson transformed the original building of West Sparta Elementary School into the City of Sparta Recreational Center. The mission was to serve human needs in greater purpose by providing quality programs that promote lifelong personal growth and the balanced development of spirit, mind, and body for all. On March 24th,1992, our local city government charted the YMCA which made the Sparta-White County Family YMCA officially validated to function under the name of the YMCA.
REACHING OUT TO THE COMMUNITY
The Y is for everyone. Our programs, services and initiatives enable kids to realize their full potential, prepare teens for college, offer ways for families to have fun together, empower people to be healthier in spirit, mind and body, prepare people for employment, welcome and embrace newcomers and help foster a nationwide service ethic. And that's just the beginning.
MISSION OF THE YMCA:
To put Christian principals in practice through programs that build healthy spirt, mind, and body for all.
