An organization's values are its guide to the implementation of its mission and should be the basis for all programmatic, strategic, and financial decisions.  The State YMCA of Georgia's core values are:

Caring-To put the needs of others above myself

Honesty-To have integrity by being truthful and trustworthy in every part of my life.

Respect-To value others, treating them as I want to be treated.

Responsibility-To be accountable for my attitudes and actions.
