YMCA of Central Stark County

To put Christian Principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.

YMCA of Central Stark County


The YMCA of Central Stark County has served Stark County since 1866. Our mission is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind, and body for all. The Y is a part of the YMCA of the USA, the largest non-profit community service organization in America.

We offer programs for everyone - people of all ages, races, religions, and incomes. We invite you to explore the many opportunities the YMCA of Central Stark County has to offer - from membership to childcare to sports - we have something for everyone! Stop by any of our branches for a tour and information. 


At the Y, you’ll find more than just a place to work out. With opportunities to connect with neighbors and give back to your community, you’ll discover a greater sense of purpose, too. 


A career at the Y is more than a job - it's an experience. That's because the Y is more than a gym - it's a cause! Every day, we work hard to positively impact the lives of those in our communities through youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. Would you like to join us?


Diversity and Inclusion Statement

The Y is made up of people of all ages and from every walk of life working side by side to strengthen communities. Together we work to ensure everyone, regardless of race, gender, income, faith, sexual orientation, or cultural background has the opportunity to live life to its fullest. Our core values are caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility – they guide everything we do.

At the Y, ensuring that Y staff, volunteers, members, and community stakeholders know and represent the community is vital to organizational success and advancing the Y’s cause of strengthening community. When we practice inclusion, we address our society’s trends and remain relevant to them while we remain true to the YMCA mission, goals, and values.
