TO HELP YOU
With a commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living
and fostering a sense of social responsibility, the Y ensures that every individual has access to the essentials needed to
learn, grow and thrive. The YMCA welcomes all who wish to participate and believes that no one should be denied access to
the Y based on their ability to pay. Through our Scholarship Program, the Switzerland County YMCA provides assistance to youth,
adults and families based on individual needs and circumstances. Every YMCA member receives the same membership benefits,
regardless of whether or not they receive a scholarship. The Y offers scholarships on memberships and programs. A scholarship
reduces the fees, but it does not eliminate them.
remember that there is a scholarship fund available to individuals and families for memberships based upon income .
Please ask the front desk staff for an application.
