Benefits of a Buehler Y Membership!

The YMCA of Metropolitan Chicago anchors every neighborhood, from the heart of the central city to the farthest reaches of the suburbs. As a result, families come closer together, children learn and grow, young people lead, individuals become self-sufficient, and all people are healthier in spirit, mind and body.

Individual Benefits

Build self-esteem, improve health and wellness, learn leadership skills, make new friends and have a new social outlet through programs and facilities.

Family and Community Benefits

Participation in a fun family atmosphere, which helps to strengthen bonds, promote healthy lifestyles and build community connections. It also offers an opportunity for volunteerism and creates partnerships. The Buehler YMCA will work hand in hand with our association as we align with the Y's priorities of Youth Development, Healthy Living and Social Responsibility.

Economic Benefits

The Buehler YMCA provides employment and leadership opportunities for youth to develop, supports individuals and families who have limited resources and creates a community of pride. During peak season, we employ more than 300 individuals.
