Every day, the Wilkes-Barre Family YMCA makes a positive and lasting impact on thousands of people in the Wilkes-Barre community. From aquatics programs to senior wellness initiatives to LIVESTRONG at the YMCA, Y programs and services strengthen the foundations of the community.

Now we want to know: How has the Y helped you? Has your child learned new skills and made friends at Y early learning programs? Did you run a half marathon after training at the Y? Has your child mastered swimming through our aquatics program? Your experiences inspire us to serve you better and inspire others to lead healthier, happier lives and we want to hear from you! Please use the form below to submit your story.

Kids can also participate! Download the “Tell Your Y Story” form and then have your kids draw a picture or write what they love about the Y. Turn it into the front desk and we’ll display them at the Y.
