Workout Wednesdays on Georgia Street
Come get your groove on with us every Wednesday at noon on Georgia Street. Now through the end of August, we are interchanging vibrant Zumba and heart pumping Hip Hop Cardio. Andre will lead you through a dynamic workout that promises to get your heart rate up and leave you smiling the rest of your workday. Each week will also feature a local celebrity to lead the warm-up. All are welcome! Workout Wednesdays are a partnership with Downtown Indy. Check our Facebook page or Downtown Indy Twitter feed for weekly updates.
Enroll in Preschool
Grow, learn and thrive! Children will develop confidence, creativity and lifelong critical thinking skills through play and exploration. We use the rigorously researched Creative Curriculum, which balances teacher-planned and child-initiated learning. We work hard to build community both with the children in the program and with their families.
Open enrollment begins February 23rd. Register before March 1st and you will be entered into a drawing for a $50 program credit good towards preschool tuition.

Leave a Legacy
Many of us have Y stories. We learned to swim at the Y as kids. We participated in a youth basketball league, or we enrolled our children in summer camp.
Even so, many people get only a small glimpse of what the Y does. During my 17 years working for the Y, I’ve had a chance to see what we really accomplish as a nonprofit in Indianapolis. We give everyone a chance to get healthier, help kids learn and graduate from school, and teach lessons about core values and leadership. When these things happen, everyone in the community wins, including you and I. That’s why I give something back to the YMCA out of each paycheck. It’s important to me . . . important enough that I hope you’ll think about joining me with a donation today.
Make a world of difference for someone right here in our community.
