The YMCA of Southern Nevada is an organization dedicated to changing lives for the better. Our cause is not only meant to promote the lives of individuals but also to build a strong, healthy and stable community. They have developed multiple programs across the region to touch and inspire children, teens, adults, and seniors. The time, valuables and finances that people donate to the Las Vegas Y are used to support many causes. If you are wondering what exactly your donation does, here's how it helps.
Quality family time is an essential component of creating a close-knit family. This strengthens emotional bonds, helping to improve communication between family members. Fun family activities are especially important when it comes to child development. According to a south university report, spending more interactive time with your children can help them get better grades, and they will be less likely to display behavioral issues.
Are you looking for an affordable and fun way to prioritize your family’s wellness no matter where you are? A nationwide Y membership is perfect for you and your loved ones. As the longtime community family wellness center of Las Vegas, the YMCA of Southern Nevada understands our members have busy schedules that often take them out of town throughout the year. Instead of neglecting your fitness routine or budgeting for additional activities on vacation, a nationwide membership grants you access to nearly 3,000 Y locations across the country!
Our strength is in community, and it's our inclusive community that makes the YMCA of Southern Nevada truly special. Together, with our friends, family members and neighbors, the Y is shaping minds, bodies and lives for the better. We pride ourselves on organizing programs that bring people together at the intersection of wellbeing and belonging. The Y helps members grow into the best people they can be, physically and mentally. We conduct every program, class and seminar with these 7 objectives in mind:
Many adults spend a majority of their time sitting in front of a computer screen or TV. This tightens the muscles of your body, restricts blood flow and can lead to all kinds of physical issues. Practicing yoga can help loosen up the muscles and release tension, as well as increase strength and endurance.
Drinking plenty of water is a great way to beat the Vegas heat, but did you know that staying hydrated is just as important in the fall and winter months? Water is essential for the body’s basic functions and also brings many other benefits. When the temperatures start to drop, be sure to keep your water bottle handy.
More than ever before, early childhood learning has become an important part of a child’s development. At the Y, we recognize the value of instilling a passion for learning in children. Our After-school Program provides a wide range of healthy educational activities for school-aged kids. This program keeps your child occupied and engaged in a supervised environment.
