When you join the Y, you belong to a community of men, women and children who strive every day to be healthy, confident and connected.

The Y’s cause is to strengthen our community. That’s why we’re here working with you every day, making sure that you, your family and community have the resources and support you need to learn, grow and thrive.

With a focus on developing the potential of kids, improving individual health and well-being, and giving back and supporting our neighbors, your membership will bring about meaningful change not just within yourself, but in our community, too.

At the Y, no individual or family is turned away due to inability to pay. Financial assistance is offered to those who cannot afford membership.

Everyday we work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income, ability or background has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. Since 1868, the Cedar Rapids Metro YMCA has contributed to the lives of hundreds of thousands of boys and girls, and men and women of all ages, races, religions and economic backgrounds.

The Y is the nation’s leading nonprofit committed to strengthening communities through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. The Y is, and always has been dedicated to building healthy, confident, connected and secure children, adults, families and communities. Every day our impact is felt when an individual makes a healthy choice, when a mentor inspires a child and when a community comes together for a common good.
