We focus our work in three key areas, because nurturing the potential of kids, helping people live healthier, and supporting our neighbors are fundamental to strengthening communities.

Slate Belt Branch

Right in the heart of the Slate Belt area in Pen Argyl, the Slate Belt Branch of the Greater Valley YMCA opened in 2015 after 15 years of planning. The facility currently includes a Wellness Center with state-of-the-art equipment, various weight lifting stations, Child Watch and two multi-purpose rooms. At the Slate Belt Branch of the Greater Valley YMCA, you will find community programming for all ages, backgrounds, fitness levels, and more.


The Y is, and always will be, dedicated to building healthy, confident, connected, and secure children, adults, families, and communities. The Y is a nonprofit like no other. Our impact is felt when an individual makes a healthy choice, when a mentor inspires a child, and when a community comes together for the common good.
