YOUR YMCA OF METROPOLITAN MILWAUKEE

OUR MISSION

For more than 160 years, the YMCA of Metropolitan Milwaukee has strengthened the foundations of our community by “Putting Christian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all.”

OUR VISION

The YMCA of Metropolitan Milwaukee’s vision is: “to become recognized as a leading community collaborator that achieves bold results in the areas of youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility, with an emphasis on youth, families and aging adults.” Our impact in Milwaukee is widespread, from teaching thousands of kids to swim each year, to being one of the only safe spaces open seven-days-a-week in the neighborhoods we serve. We also believe that lasting personal and social change happens in the places where our members live, work and play. That’s why in addition to our center-based programming, we are committed to being vocal advocates for healthy families and partnering with others to improve the greater good in Milwaukee beyond our four walls.

What's up with YMCA - Northside Metro Milwaukee branch?
So very sad to hear this. At least it was quick for Mike. He was a good friend of mine at the Y pool. Over time we chatted about most every subject when he came in during the afternoons. About 2 years ago he asked me to teach him to swim and tread. He was so delighted when he could go back and forth in the deep water alone, and he never stopped telling everyone else to take lessons, too. If I had realized it was on his bucket list, I wouldn't have taught him--then he would have had to stick around longer! And now we can't even go to the funeral.
Good afternoon, I hope this message find you well. I will like to know why was my bank account billed for the month of April. I assumed that the YMCA would suspend drafting fees. However, that was not the case. How can I be reimbursed immediately?
Hey all, some last minute instructor updates for tonight! Join me for one (or all) of the following! :) 4:15pm Basic Training Camp 5:30pm StrYkeforce (with Laura) 6:35pm Bodypump
Sometimes in life you need that push to get you going in the right directions. Due to health reason and self-motivation I recently joined the YMCA. I came to realized that it was the push that I needed. I am so happy that I made the choice to join and doing so I realized that I made the best health choice for myself. I know that I am now on the right track and on my way for a better and healthier version of myself mentally and physically. I look forward to going every week. The professional and friendly staff at the YMCA has provided me with my InBody Composition which allowed me to be more in tune with what foods to eat and healthier ways to prepare my food. I’m now on a better path of my own healthy eating plan. I love the many programs choices such as Yoga classes and the Silver and fit class which has brought my body back to life. I was able to implement the exercise programs I learned at the YMCA at home and fit it into my everyday life. The instructors for these classes are so engaging. I am so happy with the progress I have made this far. I will soon join the Shallow Water Aerobics class and swimming lessons but until that time I’ll spend time in the pool with my granddaughter and she’s determined to teach me to swim. I love the family like atmosphere it is just a happy place. I am now meeting and making new and even seeing old friends. Thank you YMCA for the push that I needed.
Sometimes in life we need that extra push and the YMCA has provided that for me. The staff that are so ever patient, kind, supportive and knowledgeable has provided me the tools to get my body and health on the right track. The group exercise class, Yoga, Body Composition as well as so much more has opened the door to a healthier me. Thank you Y team.
The staff is AMAZING!
accessible, great staff
