YMCA of Austin

Join the Challenge!

This month, join the Summer Out Loud challenge July 12-31. It’s designed to bring neighbors & families together with fun activities where everyone can participate.


Make a fitness video, invent a new game, visit someplace you’ve never been before or challenge yourself to eat five servings of fruits & vegetables. 


YMCA members and friends across the country will participate in the challenge with you and cheer your accomplishments.


Three local participants each week will win a YMCA prize pack of goodies. One local winner will receive a FREE YEAR OF MEMBERSHIP at the end of the challenge. And one national GRAND PRIZE winner will win a free family vacation!

Food For Families This Summer 


Our friends at Brighter Bites are making sure families have nutritious food all summer long. Tuesdays at Palm Elementary and Wednesdays at Guerrero-Thompson Elementary, pick up a free box of produce from 4:00 - 6:30 PM

If you’d like to volunteer to distribute produce, signups are available at this link. It’s a perfect opportunity to cross some items off your Summer Out Loud challenge activity passport. Young people with community service requirements for high school and college can knock out some hours for a good cause.
