Nationwide Membership: Now You Belong Wherever You Are!

Taking a vacation to Florida? Going on a business trip to New York? Visiting family in Michigan? 

No matter where your travels in the United States take you, your YMCA of Metropolitan Chicago membership can come, too! We are pleased to share that with the Nationwide Membership Program, members at any of our Chicagoland centers can now access more than 2,600 YMCA locations across the nation, including Puerto Rico. 

“Whether you’re a member of the YMCA of Metro Chicago or coming from one of our affiliated associations, we can’t wait to showcase for you the amenities and top-notch customer service that our locations offer,” said Tony Janca, Chief Health and Wellbeing Officer, YMCA of Metropolitan Chicago. “In addition to being a great deal, YMCA memberships offer a multitude of benefits in health, wellbeing, and community and personal development. So if you’re not already a member, now is definitely the time to join!”

To access the nationwide membership benefit, Y members can simply present their badge and a photo ID at any of the participating Nationwide Membership locations.

Please call your chosen YMCA location in advance to check that they participate in the Nationwide Membership Program, or ask a staff member at your local YMCA to look it up. Learn more about Nationwide Membership through the Y-USA Information Guide
