The YMCA of Waukesha has served Waukesha and the surrounding area since 1894, a remarkable record of stability and service. The Y is a part of the YMCA of the USA, the largest non-profit community service organization in America. We offer programs for everyone - people of all ages, races, religions and incomes. Our mission says it well: "To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all."
Over the past 100+ years, the Y has grown both in facility and programs allowing us to serve thousands of Waukesha County citizens every year in a positive way. Over 8,500 adults and children belong to the Waukesha YMCA and we impact almost 20,000 participants on an annual basis.
The Y provides programs for infants through senior citizens. As a family focused organization the primary goal of the Y is to provide a safe and healthy environment for all youth and families who participate in our programs. Programs and services are offered in aquatics, health and fitness, before and after school care, preschool and youth enrichment, summer camp, gymnastics and dance and youth sports. The Y is a not-for-profit organization working alongside other organizations, donors, businesses and individuals in Waukesha County to strengthen our charitable cause.
The new Mukwonago YMCA and the established Waukesha YMCA have teamed up to form a dynamic Association called the: YMCA of Central Waukesha County. Together we will effectively manage first class facilities, direct quality programs and deliver needed services. Through dedicated volunteer leadership, professional staff, operational synergies and financial efficiencies the Y will be stronger to better serve the growing region.
An Association Board of Directors will govern policy and lead financial oversight to ensure stability. Local Boards of Management will ensure that community needs are served, operating units run smoothly and mission is at the forefront of all we do.
With almost 120 years of service in Waukesha County, the Y is a well respected not for profit organization. We are proud of our past, stand behind our mission and are driven by future growth opportunities.
The Y stands for Youth Development, Healthy Living and Social Responsibility.
