Life Changing Experiences 


The Sarasota Family YMCA has been at the heart of Sarasota since 1945. Today, we touch over 70,000 lives through our four fitness branches and offer more than 50 youth and family development programs within four counties in Southwest Florida. We live our not-for-profit mission by providing life changing experiences and assistance to everyone of all ages, background, ability, race or religion.


Our Philosophy

As a charitable association of all ages, ethnic groups and religious affiliations, we are united in putting Judeo-Christian principals into practice through programs that enrich the quality of spiritual, mental, physical and social life for children, families and our community.

The YMCA challenges people to live by the values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.


We Believe Positive Life Changing Experiences Promote Acceptance
and Build Self Esteem For All
