At the YMCA, we’re for healthy living, youth development, and social responsibility.  Ohio YMCAs are in 165 diverse communities around the state, and serve 1.6 million Ohioans, both children and adults.

Did you know we are the largest early and out of school-time learning provider in the state?

Did you know Ohio YMCAs reach the most pre-diabetic Ohioans with the CDC-recognized evidence-based diabetes prevention program (YDPP) in the state?

And that we teach more kids how to swim than any other institution, which are lessons in safety, healthy living, and self-confidence?
