Healthy Living

Visit with a personal trainer to discover a customized path to fitness or get started right away in our strength and cardio fitness center. We also have space for basketball, pickleball, boxing, weightlifting and more.

Youth Development

Our children are our future, and we want to offer them everything we can to enrich their lives. We start with before- and after-school care to ensure they have a place to go and socialize outside of class. Then, we offer kids and teens programs to help them learn more about sports, science, art and other subjects. Teens at the Y are welcome to join courses in civic engagement and career readiness, too.

The best part? All of these programs come at a discount to our members.

Social Responsibility

Even though there's so much happening inside the Roxborough YMCA, we take our mission out to the streets of Philadelphia, too. Check out more of what's happening below. We're constantly adding new special programs, fundraisers and more to our calendar. We hope you'll get involved with us! Sign up for a membership today and find your path to healthy living.

No Place for Hate

We partnered with the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) to ensure the YMCA is inclusive and available for everyone. In 2022, our branch earned No Place for Hate accreditation through the ADL.

The accreditation comes after a year-long initiative to ensure inclusion in all facets of our YMCA. The initiative was made up of events, pledges, celebrations, and daily acts of acceptance and inclusion.

We welcome our neighbors of all races, genders, and abilities at the Y. We pledge to continue to ensure the Y is inclusive, accepting, and a place for all people.
