MY Y is now Every Y in Ohio


The Y movement is for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. We want to encourage members to utilize the Y as often as they can. Sometimes, it’s more convenient for members to utilize a Y in a different location when traveling, near a workplace or in another region. Now, full facility/full privilege YMCA members have the flexibility to use other Y facilities throughout Ohio, at no extra charge.




Simply present your active YMCA membership card and photo ID at any participating Ohio YMCA and enjoy free access. See important Program Details below.


So get out, explore Ohio and stay connected to the Y!




• The Reciprocal Membership Program is valid for YMCA full facility/full privilege members only. 

• Program-only participants may upgrade to a full membership at any time to qualify.

• Silver Sneakers members may use other Silver Sneakers locations at any time.

• Visitors to other Ys must present a valid YMCA membership card and photo ID upon the first visit and complete a visiting member waiver or standard membership application form with liability waiver.

• YMCA full facility/full privilege members must use their home branch at least 50% of the time.

• Program discounts do not apply.

• Participating YMCAs reserve the right to restrict facility or program access.

Why Party?

YMCA of Greater Cincinnati programs are designed to strengthen families and offer key building blocks that young people need to succeed in life. From early childhood education, to afterschool programs, summer camp, the teen Achievers, the Y is committed to helping youth in our community. Because of your donation nearly 4,000 kids are able to participate in Y programming who otherwise would not have this opportunity.


Did you know that with your support, each year, the Y...

Prepares 600 children for success in kindergarten
Early learning programming at the Y addresses the holistic development of young children by supporting brain development, early literacy, development of healthy habits, and strong parental skills.

Supports the academic achievement of 4,000 youth in afterschool programs
Research shows that children who participate in quality afterschool programs are more successful in academics, are healthier, and more often maintain positive behaviors. Afterschool programming at the Y is specially geared to achieve these results.


Promotes literacy and combats summer learning loss at day and overnight camps that engage nearly 6,000 children
YMCA day and overnight campers are able to explore creativity, teamwork, and leadership in a wide range of physically active programs that influence lifelong healthy living. Camp builds an interest in community with experiences in local and global cultures, where campers gain an appreciation for others different from themselves.

Accomplishes a 100% senior graduation rate for students participating in the YMCA Black and Latino Achievers Program
Over 40 professional mentors work with the Y and Achievers in this college readiness and career exploration program, which provides teens with the tools needed to pursue higher education and identify different career paths.


Your contribution and attendance helps the YMCA honor its commitment to helping youth in the Greater Cincinnati community.
