Stronger Together

At the Y, we stand against all forms of racism, discrimination and hatred. We have a strong commitment to diversity, inclusion and compassion for all.  We share the grief and outrage felt by the country in the wake of George Floyd’s death.  As we watch and experience the unrest and violence that continues to erupt throughout our communities, we acknowledge that this reality is fueled by generations of injustice. Together through the Y, we can be a positive force for change in every community we serve. We must unite. We must be heard, and we must do better.

Notice:

Due to scheduled protests, the Central and Walnut Street YMCA's will close at 3 p.m. on Friday, June 5th.

The Sussex Family Y will close at 12 p.m. on Friday, June 5th.

The Bear-Family Y outdoor pools will close at 3 p.m. on Sunday, June 7th.
