The discounts offered by the YMCA vary at each center, but members of the military are covered under the Military Outreach Initiative. Additionally, people who can't afford the membership fees can often apply for financial assistance through their local YMCA.
Military service members who are interested in getting a YMCA membership through the Military Outreach Initiative should contact Military OneSource to determine if they are eligible. If they are eligible, Military OneSource will provide an eligibility notice that must be presented to the local YMCA.
People who are interested in applying for financial assistance will have to obtain an application through their local YMCA. Proof of income or proof of government assistance benefits might be necessary to get financial assistance.
