About Us

 

The Greater Valley YMCA is a volunteer-led, nonprofit, community organization. The Y is committed to strengthening community by positively changing lives every day. At each of our branches, we concentrate our efforts in three areas: Healthy Living, Youth Development, and Social Responsibility. And we do so in a way that upholds the Y’s traditional family values of Respect, Responsibility, Caring, and Honesty.

 

For over 100 years, the Y has made tangible differences in the communities of Allentown, Bethlehem, Catasauqua, Easton, Forks, Nazareth, those comprising the Slate Belt region and the Lehigh Valley as a whole. Founded as individual YMCAs as early as 1897, the following branches of the Greater Valley Y merged together between 2010 and 2015: the Nazareth YMCA, the Suburban North Family YMCA, the Family YMCA of Easton, Phillipsburg & Vicinity and the Bethlehem YMCA. In 2014, the Forks YMCA Education Center was established. The Slate Belt branch was opened in 2015. In January 2017, the Allentown YMCA joined the Greater Valley YMCA.

Summer is the time for kids to get up, get outside, and grow. But for some children, exposure to activities that stimulate the body and mind ends with the school year. In fact, research shows that kids are prone to gain more weight and fall behind in studies during the summer. The Y believes in improving health and wellness for kids year- round, not just during the school year!

That's why you should save the date for April 27, when the Y will celebrate Healthy Kids Day - our national initiative to promote the well-being of children. This event is free and open to the public.

A special thank you to Capital Blue Cross, who is the Lehigh Valley Sponsor of Healthy Kids Day 2019 and to Lehigh Valley Health Network, Lehigh Valley Reilly Children's Hospital for presenting our Kid's Healthy Eating Areas during the event!
