As a leading Charity Navigator 4-star charity dedicated to nurturing the potential of all children and teens, improving Tampa Bay’s health and well-being and giving back and supporting our neighbors, the Tampa YMCA relies on local media to help us connect community members with the support and resources they need to be healthier, more confident, connected and secure.


At the Tampa Y, strengthening the community is our cause. We’re a leading voice on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, with staff serving as subject-matter experts in each of these areas of focus. We’re always willing to serve as a professional expert in related news stories.


If you’re a member of the media exploring a story about one of our YMCAs or a related topic, looking for photography or video opportunities in one of our Ys or just searching for compelling story ideas, please contact Senior Communications Director Lalita Llerena at or 813-224-9622 ext. 1240. We’d love to hear from you!
