Our Story

Founded in 1967, the YMCA of Alaska is the only YMCA  association in the State of Alaska. Despite our name, the Y is not just young people, not just for men and not just for Christians. As a non profit serving the Anchorage community we embrace people of all ages, races, incomes, faiths and ethnic backgrounds. Every day we are committed to building strong kids, strong families and a stronger community. This objective is put into practice everyday at both our facilities and the 13 Anchorage and Eagle River School District Elementary Schools where we offer before and after school programs. From child-watch for preschool/toddlers, school age programs, youth and adult sports, fitness and skill programs, swimming lessons, summer youth camps in Anchorage, youth resident camp near Talkeetna and collaborations with other local agencies we are working hard to serve the community of Anchorage.

We are a locally driven and community based organization governed by a local Board of Directors. Meeting community needs by providing programs and services primarily in Anchorage and the Eagle River areas. Offering membership to our two facilities in Anchorage where 10,000+ members can utilize the fitness equipment, take wellness classes, swim, utilize full locker room facilities or play basketball.  The Y is a diverse organization of men, women and children joined together by a shared commitment to strengthen community through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.
