Membership at the Y

A Place and A Purpose.

Your membership matters. When you join the Y, you are not only joining the gym. You are joining a diverse community of people dedicated to healthy living, youth development, and social responsibility. The Y is a place where your membership makes a difference and supports the health and wellness of others. Every day we give back to our community. Our impact is felt when an individual makes a healthy choice, when a mentor inspires a child, or when neighbors come together for the common good. The YMCA of Metro North is for everyone — at every age, stage, and ability. Join today and help our community thrive.
