THE BUZZ

Our newsletter "The Buzz" is currently on hold.

 

The Y is so much more than a fitness center. We are an integral resource for the community, bringing individuals together in a quest for a healthier mind, body and spirit. Our dedicated staff, instructors and volunteers are working hard every day to provide an atmosphere of enrichment for our members and guests, all in keeping with our organization’s keystone objectives to support youth development and encourage healthy living and social responsibility. We are excited about the many facility updates that are planned in the coming months to keep the facility up-to-date and accommodating for member needs.

 

We offer programs that are affordable, fun, effective, and appropriate for all ages and fitness levels. There’s something for everyone at the Y.

In keeping with our work as a charitable organization, and with the help of many generous community donors; the Y offers free and subsidized memberships to hundreds of children and families in the Pittsburg area. Our “Adult-for-Youth” and “Sustaining Membership” programs offer donors the opportunity to contribute to our scholarship offerings and make a meaningful impact in the lives of others.

 

In 2016, 455 children received free memberships, and 3,800 individuals - including 2,400 children - received subsidized membership at the Y. Additionally, our youth programs and sports leagues - with more than 6,000 annual participants - are subsidized to ensure all children can participate at a reasonable cost. More than 500 children participated in these programs free of charge in 2016.
