The Armed Services YMCA provides free or low-cost programs and services for military children, spouses, and the family unit. This is how we strengthen our military families.
Military children are the heart of our organization, because they are the ones who often sacrifice the most. We are honored to provide programs that educate, engage and entertain toddlers through 8th graders.
Youth development programs include:
Physical and mental health are critical for military families, which is why we offer a variety of programs for the whole self and the whole family.
Health and wellness services include:
Mission readiness is as much of a mindset as it is a tactical operation. It’s critical that service members know the home front is safe and sound when they deployed for duty.
Social Responsibility initiatives include:
The Armed Services YMCA is proud to work with the Department of Defense to offer the Military Outreach Initiative. The Military Outreach Initiative offers gym memberships and respite child care services for qualified military members and families nationwide. Through this initiative, military members and families receive access to vital resources that promote youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility.
