Our Y

Thank you for visiting our website! The Y is a diverse organization of men, women and children joined together by a shared commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living and fostering a sense of social responsibility.

Our membership is 21 million strong, and spread across more than 2,600 Y associations nationwide. Since no two communities are exactly alike, no two Ys are exactly alike. We bring men, women and children – just like you together- and our shared commitment to our communities ensures the opportunities to learn, grow and thrive that we create for all are ones that endure.

While our programs and facilities are always based on the unique needs and interests of our communities, every Y has one thing in common: our people. The volunteers, staff, members and donors of the Y are all united by a deep commitment to strengthening our communities.

The Y makes strengthening our communities our cause. Twenty-one million people of all ages and walks of life who turn to one of our more than 2,600 Ys each year know we’re here for them, because we’ve been here for them the last 160 years. That’s why we’re one of the largest community service organizations in the U.S.

Join us – we could use someone like you.
