Learn more about the day!

With a focus on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, strengthening communities is our cause. At the Y, we believe that lasting personal and social change happens when we all work together. Every day we work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to be healthy, confident, connected and secure.

When you give to the Y, you are funding life-changing programs that help millions of children, adults and families in the United States and around the world to learn, grow and thrive.

Your support helps the Y deliver on our commitment:

To nurture the potential of youth through building confidence at camp, academic enrichment in safe after-school programs, or foundational skills and values in our child care programs.

To improve the nation's health and well-being through combating obesity and chronic disease by providing the support and resources people need to make positive change

To give back and support our neighbors by empowering people with the resources to improve their lives and connect and contribute to the community, such as with job training, housing, newcomer services and opportunities to advocate for social change

To offer programs and services to children, adults and families who need financial assistance.


Membership and program fees at the Wilkes-Barre Family YMCA do not cover the costs to support these vital community programs. To insure that no one is denied a chance to participate because of inability to pay, we truly need your help.  Please contact Meghan Carnevale at  or 570-342-8115 ext. 3113 for more information.
