LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The YMCA of Southern Nevada is committed to continuing to serve the Las Vegas community, especially during the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Understanding that families may be struggling financially due to unemployment, income instability or medical concerns, the Y is dedicated to offering newer, lower membership options that will meet members exactly where they are financially.

The first level of membership is called the “Changemaker Membership.” This membership level remains very similar to the current rate, but offers individuals and families the chance to be a “changemaker” in their local community.

This membership level grants access to all that the Y has to offer, while also helping another family or individual in need, access the Y’s programs and services.

The rates are $73 per month for a family, $40 per month for an individual and $30 per month for a young adult.

The second level of membership is called the “Strengthening Communities Membership.” The Y has taken the current financial landscape of Las Vegas into consideration with this membership level.

As we navigate through this new normal, the Y is here to help strengthen our community and offer a discounted rate for those who may need it most.

The rates are $55 per month for a family, $30 per month for an individual and $20 per month for a young adult.

The third level of membership is called the “Y For All Membership.” At this level, it is imperative that our community understands that the Y truly is a place for all.

If anyone’s financial situation does not allow for any of the other membership levels, the Y will determine a rate that works best for the family or individual.

At the Y, everyone belongs. The Y is also committed to those who serve our country and are honored to offer a fourth level called the “Military Membership.”

This special rate is specifically for any military members and Veterans. The rates are $45 per month for a family and $25 per month for an individual.

“It is in times of difficulty that we understand the power of banding together to support our neighbors,” said Breezy Bolden, Chief Operating Officer of the YMCA of Southern Nevada.

“The Y is for everyone, regardless of their financial situation, physical ability or zip code. Together, we strengthen our community, and that is the Y’s cause.”
