Welcome to Greater Somerset County YMCA
The Y isn’t a building. It’s people from all backgrounds and walks of life who come together to improve their lives, nurture their families and strengthen their community, together. Our programs empower young people, improve health and well-being, as well as provide support and inspire action in our communities today and every day.
Find Your Passion. Find Your Purpose. Find Your Y.
With a membership to the Y, you’re not just getting a place to work out. Here, you’re part of our community where we foster an atmosphere of independence and belonging – a place where members feel comfortable being themselves. We support parents in their efforts to instill good values in their children through engaging activities that bring families together. We provide a safe, nurturing environment for children and teens to adopt healthy behaviors for life, to play and to discover their potential. We are committed to engaging, encouraging and supporting individuals on their journey to connect with friends, pursue interests, and learn how to live healthier.

THE Y: WHERE MEMBERSHIP MEANS MORE
The Y is the leading nonprofit committed to strengthening community by connecting all people to their potential, purpose and each other.
