About McGaw YMCA
Founded in 1885, the McGaw YMCA is an open, charitable membership association. Our mission is to promote growth in spirit, mind and body through programs and services that strengthen community for all people in Evanston. The McGaw YMCA has a long history of supporting youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.
While McGaw has all of the features of traditional YMCAs (gym, exercise and aquatic facilities), it has a number of facilities that make it unique among its counterparts nationwide. These include a men’s residence, a NAEYC-accredited children’s center, and a residential camp in Michigan that welcomes more than 1,800 youth every summer.
Among its many offerings for people of all ages, McGaw is a respected provider of programs for all youth in the community. These programs promote academic readiness and success through specialized instruction, enrichment activities, tutoring and mentoring. They include Head Start, a residential camp in Michigan and MetaMedia, a digital media program and maker space for middle school youth.
