The Essence of the Y
With a commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living and fostering a sense of social responsibility, the Grand River Area Family YMCA ensures that every individual has access to the essentials needed to learn, grow, and thrive.
Everyone is Welcome
The YMCA welcomes all who wish to participate and believes that no one should be denied access to the Y based on his or her ability to pay. Through our Partners with Youth scholarship program, the Grand River Area Family YMCA provides assistance to youth, adults, and families based on individual needs and circumstances.
Committed to Our Community
Determining assistance amounts is handled in a fair and consistent manner. Every YMCA member receives the same membership benefits, regardless of whether or not they receive a scholarship. YMCA members can feel confident knowing that they are a part of an organization that cares greatly for the well-being of all people and is committed to youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility.
