Last year, the YMCA of Austin helped over 7,200 children and adults take charge of their health, spend quality time together as a family, develop relationships with neighbors, learn new skills, improve their grades and enjoy a laugh with staff and other members. Programs such as the Y’s $1 annual youth membership and free after school programs fulfill a need in the community by creating a safe and healthy place for youth to play.
