I & II
Wherever You Are, We'll Be There
When you join One Y you join them all! You can be assured that whatever activity your family or your child engages in – child care, family time, sports camp – you’ll have a safe, positive environment to play, learn and grow.
ALWAYS WELCOME AT A Y (AWAY)
The AWAY Program is a membership philosophy that says: When a person enrolls in
a Y, he or she becomes a member of a nationwide association of people that helps strengthen the foundations of community through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility; and therefore, when
away from home, on business or vacation, each member will be warmly welcomed by
all other participating Ys in the United States.
AWAY members (defined as people who are active/current members of Ys outside of
San Diego County) will be granted a total of 14 visits that can be used at any
of the Y's in San Diego County per calendar year. If you wish to continue using
additional visits here in San Diego, you will be required to purchase a day pass
for each additional visit.
