To inspire, nurture, and strengthen culturally vibrant communities through youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility.
The YMCA of Snohomish County is a nonprofit organization with a mission to inspire, nurture, and strengthen culturally vibrant communities through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. Through our six YMCA facilities and over 25 camp and program sites, the Y’s work is felt throughout the county.
In Snohomish County, the Y has been serving and strengthening our communities since 1901. Our movement is made up of people of all ages and from every walk of life, all working side-by-side to ensure that everyone, regardless of gender, income or background, has the opportunity to live life to its fullest potential.
The YMCA of Snohomish County is a safe, inclusive and welcoming place for all. We don’t turn anyone away due to inability to pay. As a charitable organization the Y is pleased to offer sliding-scale financial assistance for membership and programs based on household income. An “Access For All” Membership can provide financial assistance to individuals and families with lower incomes based on household income. With Y Access for All there is no join fee, a simple application form and no waiting time to attend your YMCA after you apply.
