The YMCA of Metropolitan Milwaukee is a powerful association of men, women and children of all ages and walks of life joined together by a shared vision to create a healthier, stronger, and safer Milwaukee where families of all incomes and backgrounds truly thrive. Our impact in Milwaukee is widespread, from teaching thousands of kids to swim each year, to being one of the only safe spaces open seven-days-a-week in the neighborhoods we serve. We also believe that lasting personal and social change happens in the places where our members live, work and play. That’s why in addition to our center-based programming, we are committed to being vocal advocates for healthy families and partnering with others to improve the greater good in Milwaukee beyond our four walls.
For more than 150 years, the YMCA of Metropolitan Milwaukee has been strengthening the foundations of our communities. We've been putting Christian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all. At the Y, our mission is centered on balance. We encourage good health and foster connections through fitness, sports, philanthropy and other shared interests. In the process, we build relationships within families, between neighbors and around the world.
