Welcome to the

YMCA of El Paso

The YMCA of El Paso strengthens the foundations of our community through well-being and fitness, camps, family time, swim, sports and play, and other activities for people of all ages, incomes and abilities. We’re more than just a place to work out. At the Y, we help build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all with the core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility at the heart of everything we do.

With a commitment to nurturing youth development, promoting healthy living, and fostering a sense of social responsibility, the Y ensures that every individual has access to the essentials needed to learn, grow and thrive.

We believe that every child deserves the opportunity to experience YMCA programs, regardless of financial difficulties their family might be facing. YMCA programs such as day camp, swim lessons, youth sports and teen leadership programs do more than teach skills; they instill honesty, caring, respect, responsibility and faith, and help young people to be strong in spirit, mind and body. These experiences have a strong impact on kids, helping them grow into healthy, contributing adults.

With your help, no person will be denied the benefits of a YMCA membership or YMCA program based on financial limitations. Through the YMCA Strong Kids Campaign, people just like you come together to make their community stronger. Donations to the Strong Kids Campaign allow the YMCA to provide membership and program assistance to kids and families who might not otherwise be able to afford to pay for YMCA services.

With a commitment to making programs and services available to everyone, the YMCA provided over $300,000 in scholarships and program subsidies in 2011 to our less fortunate friends and neighbors. We ask that you give generously so that more in our community can share the YMCA experience.

Each tax-deductible dollar contributed to the YMCA Strong Kids Campaign goes directly to making YMCA programs and membership available to those in need. It only takes one to make a difference.

Be that one.

The Y is committed to providing programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all. We make every effort to ensure that no one is turned away due to inability to pay. Click to read more about our financial assistance.
