About Us

Marshalltown YMCA-YWCA

We’re for Healthy Living

The Y brings families closer together, encourages good health and fosters connections through fitness, sports, fun and shared interests.

The mission of the YMCA is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all. 

YWCA is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.

We’re not a health club, we’re a health movement. The Y is an unparalleled cause for strengthening community, because we are the community. Together with you, your family and your neighbors, our movement strengthens Marshalltown and the surrounding communities through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. We’ve done it for more than 100 years and we’re determined to keep doing it.

The Y helps people of all ages and from all walks of life to learn, grow and thrive. Together we use our knowledge to develop stronger, more inclusive communities, provide support for people and families and to promote positive change overall. We’re glad you’re here!
