A.W.A.Y. means “Always Welcome at YMCA’s.” The A.W.A.Y. program is based on the philosophy that when a person enrolls in a YMCA, he or she becomes a member of a nationwide association of people that helps build strong kids, strong families and strong communities, and, therefore, when away from home, on business or vacation, will be warmly welcomed by all other participating YMCA’s in the United States. A YMCA’s participation in this program is voluntary. Some restrictions apply.
