National Reciprocity

At the Y, we believe that positive, lasting personal and social change can come about only when we all work together to invest in our kids, our health, and our neighbors. This strengthening of community, and the realization of a Y's full potential, has the most impact when all Y's are open to all Y members and provide safe and welcoming environments for everyone.

With Nationwide Membership, members can visit any participating Y in the United States and Puerto Rico through membership at their home Y, at no additional cost. Nationwide Membership is an essential part of our cause to strengthen communities. It enables members to:

  • reach their health and wellness goals wherever they live, work, or travel
  • connect with the larger Y community in meaningful ways

The goal of Nationwide Membership is to ensure that all nationwide members have access to and can use all the areas and programs of any Y they visit. By making it possible for members to use the Y as often as they like, Nationwide Membership increases the value of Y membership. By promoting access for all, the initiative gives Y members the opportunity to be part of a single Movement and deepens the impact of the Y cause.

Terms to Know

  • Participating Y: A local association that participates in Nationwide Membership under the terms of the Nationwide Membership agreement and that can be visited by Y members from other associations through Nationwide Membership.
  • Home Y: A local association that enrolls individuals as members and collects the appropriate membership dues.
