Nationwide YMCA Membership

My Y Is Every Y

illinoisWe want to encourage members to utilize the Y as often as they can. Sometimes, it’s more convenient for members to utilize a Y in a different location when traveling, near a workplace or in another region. Now, Greater Joliet Area YMCA Facility Members have the flexibility to use other Y facilities throughout the state of Illinois, at no extra charge.

Simply present your active YMCA membership card and photo ID at one of the 40-plus participating YMCAs statewide and enjoy free access.


  • The YMCA’s Nationwide Membership Program is valid for YMCA Facility Members only. Community Members may upgrade to a Facility Membership at any time to qualify.
  • Visitors to other Y’s must present a valid YMCA membership card and photo ID upon their first visit and complete a visiting member waiver or standard membership application form with liability waiver.
  • A Facility Member’s home branch designation and subsequent monthly membership rate will be determined by which branch the member uses 50 percent of the time. Program discounts do not apply. Participating YMCAs reserve the right to restrict facility or program access. Other restrictions and exclusions may apply.
