The YMCA at Virginia Tech
Help us achieve our Give Big goal of raising $14,500 in honor of our
145th anniversary$100 for each year
that we've done great things to help the community!

The YMCA at Virginia Tech was founded in the Fall of 1873 on Virginia Tech’s campus to support the social, physical, and spiritual heath of the student body. Over the decades, our programs have expanded to encompass a wide variety of services for the whole community. With the 2,700 other YMCA’s across the country, we strive to promote youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility in all we do.

As part of a national network of Campus YMCA’s, Student Programs are still a strong component of our work. We currently have eight teams of student volunteers who focus on issues ranging from education and sustainability to senior citizens and community development to food access and poverty intervention. Each group provides direct service to the community in their focus area. In this way, our students fulfill the Campus Y mission to build community through learning, leadership, and service.
At the Y-Center on 1000 N. Main St., community members can enjoy great deals at our Thrift Store, join our Pottery Studio, or get connected with our International Programs, including English conversation groups and a morning program for international women. Individuals and community groups can also utilize our space for their own special events and programs. For example, several local dance clubs regularly meet at the Y. 
The YMCA at Virginia Tech supports healthy, sustainable lifestyles through our recycling and food programs. Local residents can bring batteries, electronics, or textiles to our Thrift Store location for recycling.
We encourage you to checkout our website at for more information about all of our programs and community events. By supporting the YMCA at Virginia Tech, you'll sustain all of these and so much more. Donate today and help us continue to expand opportunities for New River Valley residents to learn, grow, and thrive!
