Lincoln YMCA


Our Mission

At the Y, we take immense pride in our work to strengthen communities and help all of us be our best selves. We provide a place to play, to learn, to be healthy, to eat well and to give back. We give parents childcare, young adults job training, seniors a way to connect and children a safe place to go. We believe that everyone—no matter who they are or where they’re from—deserves the opportunity to reach their full potential. Everything the Y does is in service of making sure people and communities thrive.

The Lincoln Area YMCA in Illinois collaborates annually with over 30 agencies, businesses or organizations, giving back to the community in either service or space.

Program Registration available on-site and online

A membership at the Lincoln YMCA not only makes you active, it strengthens your community at the same time. At the YMCA, our focus on health and well-being helps our members find balance in their life. That’s why we’re here with you every day to make sure you, your family and community have the resources and support to help you learn, grow and thrive.
