For Social Development

Welcome to the

Valley Points
Family YMCA

In one way or another, we're all connected to the Y. Whether it's where you discovered a talent that became a lifelong passion, were encouraged by a mentor, or where you turn for support with a healthy lifestyle.

At the Valley Points Family YMCA, we believe our programming lays the groundwork for healthy futures, builds a sense of community, and conveys the values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. Yes, children learn to swim, kids have somewhere to go after school and we teach about healthy lifestyles, but the Y is far more than that. The Y is a place where kids find direction, families come together and people rally to make a difference.

With a commitment to nurturing youth development, promoting healthy living, and fostering a sense of social responsibility, the Y ensures that people of all ages and from all walks of life have access to the essentials needed to be more healthy, confident, connected and secure.

 

WHAT'S HAPPENING AT THE Y


Looking for family-friendly Halloween activities for your kids to take part in? Join us at the Y on Monday, October 27th for a "spooktacular" evening! The Kiski Valley Branch is hosting their annual "Trunk or Treat" event from 6:30-8:00pm (families are encouraged to bring treats to share with our trick-or-treaters), while the New Kensington Branch is hosting a "Boo Bash!" from 6:00-8:00pm. Both events are free to the community and feature a variety of activities for the kids. Join us, if you dare!

Hanging Out with a Purpose! 
Have you ever wanted to be the team captain? Class President? How about the leader that teachers notice and other students look up to? What about making a difference in your community? Join the Y's Leaders Club and experience opportunities for leadership development, personal growth and service to others! Leaders Club is for teens in grades 7-9 and meets weekly beginning Wednesday, November 5th at the New Kensington Branch. By joining Leaders Club, teens will gain experience through volunteering, serve the community, strengthen their academics, build their resume, form friendships, become a role model for other youth, and earn a free monthly YMCA membership.

Start School Ready to Succeed!
Thanks to a grant from the United Way of Westmoreland County and Y-USA, our Y is offering the Early Learning Readiness program for free for children ages 0-5—along with their caregivers—to learn together! ELR engages both children and caregivers to play and learn while developing the physical, verbal and social skills necessary for school. The program runs twice a week for two hours for 38 weeks, starting September 3rd. Click here for more information!

The Y is committed to providing programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all. We make every effort to ensure that no one is turned away due to age, income or background. Click to read more about our financial assistance opportunities.
