The YMCA of
Greater Syracuse has been a leader in providing healthy choices to
Onondaga County residents since 1858. We are the county’s largest provider of
school-age child care, and one of its largest employers of teenagers.
The YMCA is a powerful association of men, women and children of all ages and walks of life, joined together by a shared passion: to strengthen the foundations of community.
With a commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living and fostering social responsibility, the Y ensures that every individual has access to the essentials needed to learn, grow and thrive. Anchored in more than 10,000 neighborhoods around the country, the Y has the long-standing relationships and physical presence to deliver lasting personal and social change.
Our Community: Ready to grow stronger
About 15 years ago, leading residents and business leaders in the
northwestern part of Onondaga County decided they wanted a Y in their
neighborhood. With guidance from the Greater Syracuse YMCA, they formed a
board of volunteers to survey community needs, identify an appropriate
site, develop building plans and gather the resources needed. In-depth
surveys and analysis found that the area lacks sufficient recreational
facilities and wellness programs for children, adolescents, families and adults.
Our Staff: Ready to helpWhen membership grows to its expected size, the Northwest Family YMCA will employ about 300 people who are passionate about making connections and helping people grow stronger. Click here to learn more about working at the Northwest Family YMCA.
