What We Do
At the Y, we strengthen community by working side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure everyone, regardless of age, income, or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow, and thrive. We focus our work in three areas:
The YMCA offers Early Childhood Education at six locations across the metro. Many locations offer preschool, after-school care, summer day camp and other programming aimed at nurturing the potential of every child and teen. Our youth sports programs help to build strong, confident kids while creating a safe environment for play.
We aim to improve the nation's health and well-being through the use of our wellness centers, personal trainers, group fitness classes, pools and gymnasiums.
Giving back and providing support for our neighbors is an integral part of the YMCA. Each year thousands of scholarships are given to families in need across the metro to pay for Y memberships, early childhood care, out of school care, youth sports, swim lessons, and more.
