Welcome to the Hastings Y. We believe in the power of building community through youth development, promoting healthy living, and encouraging social responsibility. We recognize the power of working together, with people of every age and background, to make life better for everyone in and around Hastings, Nebraska.
Our success is measured by how well we engage our community in each of these areas of focus.
The Hastings Y builds programs that help children and teens learn positive behaviors, explore interests, and realize their potential. Creating a positive experience for youth today, builds confident, community-minded adults in the future.
Healthy living involves more than physical activity. It requires a healthy mind and spirit, too. The Hastings Y is designed to challenge you in every area, helping you to better achieve a well-rounded lifestyle.
The best communities are the result of people of every age and walk of life, working together to achieve incredible goals. At the Hastings Y, we encourage people to experience the personal satisfaction that comes from giving to others through time and talents.
