Welcome to the YMCA

The Y has been a vibrant part of Florida communities for more than 130 years. As the leading charity committed to youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, Florida Ys create opportunities for men, women and children of all ages to learn together, strengthen their bodies and minds, and build community. Working together with our members and volunteers, the Y effectively addresses critical community needs and reaches out to every corner of the state, especially to the most vulnerable populations in our communities.

Today, 1 out of every 18 Florida residents is involved in the Y. Florida Ys serve all segments of their communities by providing youth enrichment opportunities, promoting health and wellness, building partnerships and encouraging volunteerism. Working together, we create communities with a shared vision – communities in which everyone plays a part in building a stronger tomorrow.

The Florida State Alliance of YMCAs provides a single, unified voice for the Y in Florida. Together, we believe we can create a healthier and more active state for future generations.
