Welcome to the

Valley Points
Family YMCA

In one way or another, we're all connected to the Y. Whether it's where you discovered a talent that became a lifelong passion, were encouraged by a mentor, or where you turn for support with a healthy lifestyle.

At the Valley Points Family YMCA, we believe our programming lays the groundwork for healthy futures, builds a sense of community, and conveys the values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. Yes, children learn to swim, kids have somewhere to go after school and we teach about healthy lifestyles, but the Y is far more than that. The Y is a place where kids find direction, families come together and people rally to make a difference.

With a commitment to nurturing youth development, promoting healthy living, and fostering a sense of social responsibility, the Y ensures that people of all ages and from all walks of life have access to the essentials needed to be more healthy, confident, connected and secure.

 

WHAT'S HAPPENING AT THE Y


What do you get when you combine bowling and the Y? Bowling 4 the Kids! Join us on Saturday, June 27th from 1-4 pm at Wildlife Lanes in Lower Burrell and not only will you have a great time, but you'll also help raise funds to support the Y's Annual Youth Development Campaign. Proceeds from this event help ensure that no child, family or adult is turned away because of an inability to pay for programs and services.

Can you measure a healthy life? Sure, you can—by the cup, the ounce, and the block. If you're at risk for type 2 diabetes, you can make small, measurable, changes that can reduce your risk and help you live a happier, healthier life. The YMCA's Diabetes Prevention Program gives you the skills you need and the support you deserve to make lasting healthy lifestyle changes. Click here to learn more...

If you like to read and are a member of the Y, this is the club for you! The book club members select the readings and meet on the third Tuesday of the month at 7:00pm for discussion at the Kiski Valley Branch. Book lists are selected approximately six months in advance. Join us at the next meeting—May 19; The Fault in Our Stars by John Green—to get in on the fun!

Start School Ready to Succeed!
Thanks to a grant from the United Way of Westmoreland County and Y-USA, our Y is offering the Early Learning Readiness program for FREE for children ages 0-5—along with their caregivers—to learn together! ELR engages both children and caregivers to play and learn while developing the physical, verbal and social skills necessary for school. The program runs twice a week for two hours for 38 weeks, with continuous enrollment throughout. Click here for more information!

The Valley Points Family YMCA is pleased to introduce a three-tiered pricing structure for 2015! In addition to Member and Non-Member Rates, we've added a Family Member Rate (discounted as much as 50%!) for many of our fee-based programs. If you are part of an active Family Member unit at our Y, you are eligible to participate in fee-based programs at the Family Member level. See the Welcome Center for more information!

The Y is committed to providing programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all. We make every effort to ensure that no one is turned away due to age, income or background. Click to read more about our financial assistance opportunities.
