In 2020, the Akron Area YMCA proudly marked 150 years of strengthening our community.
Since 1870, the mission of the Akron Area YMCA has been in control.
Fueled by faith and propelled by the practices of reaching ALL people through a connection of mind, body and spirit, the Akron Area YMCA has continued to launch lives, careers and passions for 150 and counting.
We’ve taught kids how to swim and Moms how to relax. We’ve guided girls and boys, teamed up with corporations, given kids a strong start in school and led the way for campers of all ages and abilities.. We’ve built a few buildings and even more bridges; connecting people through programs that reinforce the rules of treating everyone with respect, dignity, care and compassion.
