The Greater Joliet Area YMCA has been serving families- regardless of age, income or background- from throughout Will County and its surrounding areas for more than 80 years. One of the area’s leading non-profit organizations, the Y brings families closer together, encourages good health, and fosters connections through fitness, sports, fun and shared interests. Through our three full-service branches and our ‘Y Without Walls,’ thousands of area residents participate in exceptional year-round programming, including before school and after school child care, summer camps, youth sports, group fitness classes and swim lessons, among others. Through our many community partnerships and collaborations, we are constantly working to introduce new programming to meet the ever-changing needs of the communities we serve. With the guidance of our leadership team and volunteer board of directors and advisory boards, we work to raise funds and secure grants to support our scholarship fund, which helps to ensure that no one is turned away from the Y for the inability to pay. The Greater Joliet Area YMCA embraces the Y’s mission and works each day to further our cause through our members and the communities we serve.
