Benefiting Our Community

The YMCA makes support and opportunities accessible that empower people and communities to learn, grow and thrive. With a focus on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the Y nurtures the potential of every youth and teen, improves the area’s health and well-being, and provides opportunities to give back and support neighbors. 

The YMCA of Greater New Orleans serves over 42,000 people every year, including 10,000 youth. At the Y, we serve our members and the community alike - over half the individuals and families we reach are community members that attend our programs and events throughout the year.
