Welcome to the Taylor Family YMCA. The Y is the unparalleled cause for strengthening community because we are the community. Together with you, your family, and your neighbors, our movement strengthens America’s towns and cities through promoting three things: youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. We’ve done it for nearly 160 years already, and we’re determined to keep doing it.
We are a powerful association of men, women, and children joined together by a shared commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living, and fostering a sense of social responsibility. We believe that lasting personal and social change can only come about when we all work together to invest in our kids, our health, and our neighbors. That’s why, at the Y, strengthening community is our cause.
The Taylor Family YMCA is committed to developing the spirit, mind and body of all, regardless of financial ability, in a positive, healthy, Christian environment through quality leadership, programs, services and facilities.
The YMCA first opened in Elgin in 1866. We serve 3800 members in Fox River Valley communities such as Elgin, South Elgin, Gilberts, Dundee, Carpentersville, Hampshire, Geneva, St. Charles, Streamwood, and Bartlett. Special membership rates apply to Youths, Teens/students, Families, Seniors, and Single parent families. We are a charitable non-profit community service organization. (Section 501(c)(3)). With the help of charitable donations, we offer scholarship aid to qualifying members, so that “no youth is turned away for inability to pay”.
