Nationwide Membership


Nationwide Membership enables you to visit any participating Y in the United States through membership at your “home” YMCA (your home location is the facility that enrolled you as a member and that collects your membership dues).

We offer this because we want to help you reach your health and wellness goals wherever you live, work, or travel. This is an essential part of our cause of strengthening communities. 


  • Valid for active, full facility YMCA members
  • Nationwide member visitors must use their home Y at least 51% of the time
  • Program-only participants and special memberships are not eligible for Nationwide Membership
