Class Information Through Text

Have you ever been frustrated because a class was canceled and you didn’t know until you came in. Want updates on when your favorite class changes days/times or instructors. Would you like a convenient way to stay up-to-date on everything that is group exercise at the Downtown YMCAs? We have the solution for you. We are rolling out a new texting service that is aimed at getting you up to the minute information about what ever and however many classes you would like. Ask one of our staff how to get signed up.

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. 

Refer A Friend
