OUR MISSION

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 classes 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.

NEWS

(Official Newsletter of the Pittsburg Y)

My how time flies when you’re having fun! Where did the time go? Spring is right around the corner.  I hope everyone is doing well, I know we’re all ready for some warm, dry weather and longer days. Now that March is here, it marks the end of my second year as Executive Director of the Y.  I truly feel like I just got here. It’s been a great run for me. I’ve enjoyed getting to know people here at the Y and in the community.  I appreciate the periodic conversations I have with many of you daily.  I’m very appreciative of the support we’ve been given by so many as we work to improve the Y.

   

For some time now I have been talking about plans being made to do facility upgrades in the short term. Currently, we are seeking estimates on a handful of projects. If all goes well in the next couple of months, there will be visible signs of these improvements as they begin to take shape. I know that there are many areas that need attention, so we will continue to look at what’s next.  Thank You all for hanging in there and staying loyal as we work our way through these processes.  As always at any time if you have questions or concerns don’t hesitate to contact me.

 

Thanks, Mike.

Matching Funds Program for Scholarships - This program is on-going. There’s still $36,870 available for a much. No contribution is too small. Contact the office is you would like to contribute. The proceeds go to scholarships and other priority needs for The Y. Thank you to all our contributors who have generously given to this program. ​

Y Health Day - This is something we started back in the fall and is held the second Thursday of the month. Recently we have partnered with K-State Research and Extension to put on different seminars in the coming months. They were here in February and talked about Seniors and Nutrition. This month Girard Mental Health Services will be here on the 12th to talk about Seniors and Stress.   

Membership Drive - The results are in. We received 162 applications for renewal during the drive. The top two point producers in the competition were John Mitchelson and Judy Westhoff. The top team was the team captained by Shane Peak. Team members were Amy Hite, Johns Mitchelson, Ashley Robinson, Don Orender, Jeff Elliott, Nancy Tyler, Chris Farris and Caleb Farabi. I want to extend a special thank you to Judy Westhoff and Joe Hart for serving as co-chairs and to Lisa Little as chair of the membership committee. Thank you to all drive workers!  

YMCA Chaplain - Pastor Adam Parrish is a volunteer who is available to members of the Y.  If you would like to visit with Adam his office is upstairs and the hours are Monday’s 2:30-4pm and Thursday’s 8-9:30am.      

 

Activities - Spring Soccer sign-up is underway. Pickle Ball continues to grow in popularity. We just purchased another net. If you’re interested feel free to join the group. Another class for Women’s Self Defense is available.    

These are some of the things that are in-progress. Your help in adapting to the changes and taking care of the facility will make for a smooth transformation and a better Y for all members to enjoy.

 

If you have questions or concerns feel free to contact me.

 

Thank you for your support!
