The Allegheny YMCA’s facility includes a gymnasium, newly renovated strength training center, a brand new 22 piece cardio wellness center with cardio theatre, indoor pool, indoor running track, handball/racquetball/squash courts,spinning studio, group exercise studio, meeting rooms, carpeted locker rooms and men’s residence rooms.
In 1919 the Allegheny YMCA was organized to replace the former Boy’s Branch of the YMCA of Pittsburgh, the North Side YMCA and the Manchester YMCA. On November 6, 1927, the YMCA building at 600 West North Avenue was dedicated and featured a modern gymnasium, pool, bowling alleys, resident rooms, club rooms, and a cafeteria. At this time, the Y’s primary function was to offer programming targeted directly to grade school boys, high school boys, and employed young men.
By 1980, the Allegheny YMCA had expanded its services to become more involved in the community. Currently, the Y offers programs in health and wellness, after school child care, recreational sports, and housing for men, meeting the changing needs of the community.
The Allegheny YMCA takes an active role in the North Side Community, in particular, with its Building Bridges Campaign. The campaign supports families and children in our community by funding the Building Bridges program which provides child care assistance, membership assistance, residence assistance and health and wellness programs for people of all ages.
At the Y, we’ve always known that positive change comes about only when we invest in our kids, our health and our neighbors. And that’s why we’re here. We have three areas of focus:
Because young people need caring adults to provide support, guidance and encouragement as they grow.
Because wellness in Spirit, Mind and Body strengthens our very being, and enhances our interactions with others.
Because we truly are in this together, and together we can harness our individual strengths and bring about positive change around us.
So while we’ve changed our appearance to better reflect the work we do and the positive impact we make, we’re still supporting this community in the same way we always have. We look forward to enriching more lives and more families, and to further strengthening this community for decades to come.
