At the Y, our cause is strengthening community – and that means being there for our neighbors in the good times and in the rough times. Now, you can help us open our hearts to those impacted by Hurricane Irma. When you become a First Coast YMCA member, we’ll waive your joining fee AND provide a free 6–month membership in your name to a person or family suffering loss or hardship from the storm. This gift will provide them a place to belong, recharge their spirit and connect with others who deeply care about their well-being.
For A Better Us
When you join the Y, you not only become a member – you become part of a cause. We are committed to helping you and your family live healthier. We also work every day to:

- Give back and support our neighbors
Your membership can make us—as individuals, families and a community—better. For a better you. For a better community. For a Better Us.
We have locations in Arlington, Bartram Park, Downtown Jacksonville, Mandarin, Northwest Jacksonville, Riverside, Southside, Fleming Island, Orange Park, Ponte Vedra Beach, St. Augustine and Fernandina Beach. Our Newest Location – YMCA at Baptist North at I-295 and Dunn Avenue – Now Open!
