Central Florida Metro YMCA
YMCA of South Florida, Inc
West Suburban YMCA
This Join us! We are building a healthier Lake County Indiana. We are on our way to serve 1 out of every 4 people in Lake County. We strongly believe in being affordable to all and are approaching $1 million in financial assistance this year to ensure everyone can participate regardless of their ability to pay. If you are a servant leader with a passion for what the cause driven YMCA values, put your skills to work by helping us grow and achieve our vision.
Living in "The Region" offers residents a sparse suburban feel, but if you want to get that city feel, it is just a short drive to the Windy City. We are close to the Indiana State Dunes and Lake Michigan.
