WHY BUILD?A new Jackie Robinson Family YMCA reinforces all of the great work that the Y has done in the Southeastern San Diego Community since 1943 and allows us to extend our reach to work tirelessly to nurture the potential of kids, improve health and well-being and give back and support our neighbors.
Update 6/13/16!Construction on the new ball fields is coming along nicely!
4/19/16 Demolition Begins
Thanks to the generosity of volunteers and public and private donors who give to the Y, our community is stronger.
Every day, we work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.
