Support a mentoring match.

Over 450 children and teens are currently mentored through Big Brothers Big Sisters at the Y. Another 655 are on the waitlist. It costs $2,500 a year to support each mentoring match. We urgently need your help to get all of these young people off the waitlist and into a nurturing and healthy mentor match.

Please help make this happen. Make a donation today.

Thank you.

Take advantage of all the Y has to offer!

When you are a Y member, you are welcome at all 13 Y Centers in Central Maryland*, so there's always a Y near you. Some centers feature outdoor pools, while others may have a cozy fireplace for chilly winter days (they'll be here before you know it!). Still, others may have a rock wall or family fun pool with a water slide and tipping buckets. Mix and match exercise classes and meet new people all across Central Maryland. But rest assured, one of the many things you'll find at every Y is friendly associates, quick to smile and help you any way they can.

Join now and finish the summer with day trips to the Y! No long-term contract. No add-on fees. Sign up at a Y center or join online.
