Corporate Membership

Healthy Employees Are Happy Employees

As the nation's leading nonprofit committed to strengthening the community, we work side by side with local agencies, corporations, and organizations to improve the quality of life for employees and their families. Studies show that a strong sense of belonging correlates with higher job performance, lower turnover, and fewer sick days, all of which lead to bottom-line benefits. (Harvard Business Review, Dec. 2019)

At the Y, we know that improving health and well-being boosts employee engagement and productivity. In response to the uncertainty and isolation of this past year, we have launched creative new ways to connect and get healthy.

Health education, fitness assessment, service opportunities, and on-site virtual fitness classes are just a few ways to connect staff to one another and to better health. We have been strengthening youth and families supporting active lifestyles and healthy aging, and building community resilience for 175 years.

National Membership

One Membership, All Locations

Travel for work but don't want to lose your fitness progress? Prefer the classes offered at another location? Want to have options to work out close to home and to work?

No problem. Now your membership means even more, thanks to the Y's Nationwide Membership.  All YMCA members have access to all participating Ys in the US and Puerto Rico. Simply present your active YMCA membership card and photo ID at any participating YMCA and enjoy free access.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, many Ys are limiting access. Please call ahead.
