As the holiday season comes to a close, we are reminded to be thankful for the many blessings in our lives. We, at the Greater Marco Family YMCA, are thankful for a community which works together. We know when we work together as one we can move people and communities forward. With your help we are able to provide support to our neighbors and opportunities for kids, adults and families to learn, grow and thrive. 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.

Anchored in more than 10,000 neighborhoods around the country, the Y has the long-standing relationship and physical presence to deliver lasting personal and social change. Strengthening Marco Island and the surrounding communities is our cause and we serve three crucial areas of focus to help individuals, families and communities learn, grow and thrive.

The Y is for Youth Development because we believe all kids deserve opportunities to discover who they are and what they can achieve. The Y is for Healthy Living, improving the nation’s health and well-being. The Y is for Social Responsibility, giving back and providing support to all our neighbors. The Y continues to listen and respond to our communities’ most critical needs. Whether developing life skills or emotional well-being, welcoming and connecting diverse populations or advocating for healthier communities, the Y fosters the care and respect all people need and deserve.

With over 60 health and fitness classes each week tailored to fit your needs, tennis programs, a state of the art fitness room, youth development and youth sports programs to keep your children active and engaged, you’ll find something at the Greater Marco Family YMCA to meet the needs of each member of your family.

We are here to serve you, your family and all of our community while developing your spirit, mind and body. Stop by today to see how we can serve you.

With your continued support, we are able to nurture the potential of kids, improve our community’s health and well-being and give back and support our neighbors. Thank you for helping the YMCA strengthen the foundation of community.
