The YMCA provides a safe, nurturing environment as well as the guidance and encouragement to discover all we can achieve. Summer camps offer opportunities for kids to succeed: shooting an arrow, creating a masterpiece in arts and crafts, and improving swimming skills. In afterschool programs, coaches help young athletes develop skills and techniques while learning about teamwork and values.

But that's not all - the Athens YMCA also works hard to be sure that adults and seniors have access to wellness programs including nutrition, diabetes prevention, cancer wellness, and obesity awareness programs. We provide music and swim opportunities for children with special needs while giving families an opportunity to grow and play together.

Having someone believe in our potential makes us all better.

Y volunteers and staff fundraise through the annual campaign to ensure that parents have access to after-school care, kids have access to water safety lessons, and seniors have access to health and wellness programs.

Your support provides those valuable opportunities. We hope you'll choose to support the vibrant work of the Athens YMCA in our community through a donation or pledge today.

  • Annual Campaign - gifts to the annual campaign help fund our youth, family, and senior scholarship programs
