What is MyY?

  • MyY is your place to share your story. This is your chance to tell the world about how the YMCA has influenced your life! Whether through Child Care, Employment Services, Health and Fitness or Financial Assistance, we want you to share your journey.

What is the Purpose of MyY?

  • Simple… communicate the great things MyY does to support the community. As a charity it is important that we not only support local communities, but also receive support from local fundraising efforts. With your support, we can make a difference in more lives, more childrens families and youth will be given the chance to enjoy a YMCA experience.

What’s the catch?

  • No Catch! No cost involved, no weekly emails, we just want to hear from you! But, we are accepting donations to the Strong Kids Campaign on a voluntary basis.
