About the Downtown Oakland YMCA
The Y is a diverse organization of women, men and children joined together by a shared commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living and fostering a sense of social responsibility.
Since no two communities are exactly alike, no two Ys are exactly alike. We bring men, women and children—just like you—together. Our shared commitment to our communities ensures the opportunities we create for all to learn, grow and thrive are ones that endure. While our programs and facilities are always based on the unique needs and interests of our communities, every Y has one thing in common: our people.
