The Bellefonte Family YMCA and the State College Family YMCA merged on January 1, 2009 to form the YMCA of Centre County. The reason for this merger was to enhance and expand YMCA services throughout Centre County.
The YMCA of Centre County offers a wide variety of membership and program opportunities. Major programs include child care, school age child care, fitness and wellness programs, aquatic programs, a multitude of youth activities, leadership development opportunities for teens, and family programs.
The YMCA is committed to community development, building new partnerships, strengthening existing collaborations, and expanding services to underserved areas in the county.
The YMCA is also looking for opportunities to develop new facilities within the county that will help meet its mission of building strong kids, strong families, and strong communities.
