- Why are the walls light colors?
The color palette at the YMCA is an intentional part of our client-focused design. While bright, vibrant colors are often used to boost energy and provides stimulation, our philosophy of inclusive design requires a comfortable, calming environment. The choice of natural light and soothing colors meets the needs of stimulus–and light–sensitive persons, while promoting a spa-like atmosphere for everyone to enjoy.More info
Join the Y
Join the Y and become part of a family of more than 20 million members in more than 2,600 YMCAs across the country. Listed below are four ways to be involved in your YMCA.
A facility membership provides you with access to the YMCA wellness facilities, programs, and activities. In addition, many programs are offered at a reduced rate for facility members.
Support the YMCA through charitable giving. Contact our Development Director at 239-2809 or visit sf-ymca.net and click "Give" for more information.
Enroll in YMCA programs without the benefits of membership. This is the first step in experiencing the YMCA before becoming a vested member with membership privleges.
Volunteers are a critical force in the YMCA. Volunteers create policy, coach, mentor, supervise, clean, organize, fundraise and so much more resulting in thousands of hours contributed to the YMCA's cause. Contact the YMCA at 359-9622 and ask to speak to the director of the department for which you would like to volunteer.
