Welcome & Our Mission
Welcome to the YMCA of Austin!
Welcome and thank you for making the Y a part of your life. Our Y is blessed to have an incredibly skilled and compassionate staff and board of directors who work every day at making your Y an important and enriching part of your day. With your membership, you are a member of a movement and a place where families come together to spend quality time with each other, adults connect with friends, pursue interests and learn how to life healthier and communities thrive because neighbors support each other and give back.
We encourage all of our members to actively use all of the great programs and amenities the Y has to offer. Whether you want to participate in our free group exercise classes, walk on our track, swim laps or play a game of pick-up basketball, we truly have something for everyone.
Our Y is particularly sensitive to the financial difficulties so many are facing and we believe that no one should be turned away due to their inability to pay. Because of this, we have a wonderful financial assistance program that can help with not only monthly membership dues, but youth program fees and child care.
Again, thank you for joining our Y community. We hope that we fulfill our mission to you which is to build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
