Meet Zoe! The Y's new candidate for president, potentially... in 2064.

The Y.  Not just a gym.  So much more...
Like, music! We're pleased to partner with The Gilmore  to offer, through its community outreach initiative, beginner keyboard lessons for adults and youth ages 11-14. Classes meet once a week for 14 weeks at the Maple Branch. See a listing of all the Arts and Humanities classes we're offering this fall!

Getting kids ready for school 
one backpack  at a time.
This August, we're collecting school supplies for the Kalamazoo and Portage Public School systems to help make sure kids and teachers start the school year with the  materials  they need to be successful.

Please stop by and drop off donations of school, craft or art supplies at either one of our branches.  

Thinking of joining the Y? Donate a backpack, and we'll waive the joiner fee.

For youth development. For healthy living. 
For social responsibility. 
For 150 years, the YMCA of Greater Kalamazoo has been providing a place to grow, learn and thrive.  Where all are welcome. And where everyone has an opportunity to nurture their mind, body and spirit. We're not just a gym. We're a community center, built up through a membership that lifts our neighbors and each other. 
The Y. For All. 

CALLING ALL PAST YMCA MEMORIES: To celebrate the Y's 150 Years in the Greater Kalamazoo area, we're inviting you to share with us any photos you have of a past Y experience. Please contact Sid Ellis at 269-345-9622 x128 or email your scanned treasure to sellis@kzooymca.org with a photo description and names of persons included. 

By submitting your photos, you give the YMCA of Greater Kalamazoo permission to use them without restriction, through print, projection, internet, web site, video, and/or any other potential media market.
