Becoming a Member

More than a membership
We don't just sell memberships, we build relationships.
Different people choose to be Y members for different
reasons. It may be our comfortable exercise
environment, our commitment to quality, or our great
family atmosphere. Many join the Y in search of
something greater than themselves. They want to
participate in our broader mission.

Take a closer look
The Long Branch Area YMCA is a 501(c)3 tax exempt, charitable organization. Generally speaking, most people want to be associated with something good.

Often times, joining the Y and participating in Y programs serve as a means to a larger end:
The strength of our organization allows us to serve at-risk children and youth, from the very young in our Child Watch program to teens who need a safe place to go after school. Thousands of community members who walk through our doors and find a value system that infuses faith, caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility in all Y programs and services, reinforcing the same values many instill in their children, their home, and their lives.

In today's busy world, it's easy to lose sight of what's important. Your time at the Y is valuable and we work hard to help you achieve that balance between a healthy spirit, mind and body. But this connection doesn't just happen in our classes. The fellowship that's found in Y centers is refreshing. You feel a sense of belonging and new friendships are formed. This ability to connect with people gives a lift to your spirit just as much as any fitness class.

People have many different reasons for choosing the Y, but each one is ultimately fulfilled by our mission to serve. In simplest terms, we are an organization made up of good people who do good things. Who wouldn't want to be a part of that?
