Make Your Community Count!

Help Your Community - Census 2020

The YMCA of Central New York has been bringing families, neighbors and friends together in a motivated and fun environment to learn, play and grow for over 160 years. Through youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility, we’re committed to nurturing potential and strengthening communities.

As part of our mission to strengthen community, we're sharing the message of the 2020 Census to build awareness and mobilize census response efforts. By partnering with the U.S. Census Bureau, we're helping our community get the political representation and resources we need.

The Census is important, safe and easy!
And over the next few months, hundreds of thousands of people will be hired as enumerators. We hope that YOU: our neighbors in our communities, will apply to these jobs because you know best how to connect with hard-to-count people in your community.
