At the Akron Area YMCA, we are here for you. Our impeccably clean facilities are open and ready to help you meet your goals and find community--whatever that looks like for you.  Beginning on June 2, 2021 we relaxed our mask requirements -- in the BRANCHES and returned to the pre-COVID operation and protocol.  At this time, changes to our Child Care operations are still under the jurisdiction of the Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services, so no additional changes have yet to be announced.  



Have a BLAST with the Akron Area YMCA

Join the whole community in an anniversary bash -- 151 years in the making.  Dance to The Avenue, Cleveland's hottest band, and be thrilled with a fireworks show on the backdrop of the iconic former YMCA building in downtown Akron.  A $10 donation is your admission and your ticket to possibly win a 55" Samsung Smart TV.  Tickets at the branches or via the link.

Good People know Good People

We love to work with people who enjoy developing youth, being socially-conscious and supporting healthy lifestyles for all.  But, sometimes good people are hard to find.  We have current full and part-time openings, particularly in our areas of Early Care/Education and Before/After School Care.  If you know a good person ... please make the introduction!
