"Your City, Your Y"

Association-wide Event


The YMCA of Greater Louisville is excited to participate in Welcoming Week for the second year in a row. This year, several Louisville YMCA branches will be hosting Welcoming Week exhibits during the week. We will be kicking things off with an interactive map representing the many nations of our community of YMCA members. We will also have informational posters educating the community about the growing immigrant/refugee population in Louisville. Local branches will answer questions from immigrant and refugee visitors about membership and YMCA services. 

Later in the week, join us for a city-wide futsal tournament that will be open to refugee and American born individuals and teams (non-members of YMCA are included).  

Lastly, the Downtown branch will host a free "Wellness Passport" event in which clients of Catholic Charities of Louisville and Kentucky Refugee Ministries will be invited to the downtown YMCA to participate in staff-led supervised activities and exercises. Additional offerings include a massage therapist onsite for mini sessions.

We hope these events inform Louisville's recently-arrived immigrant and refugee community about ways to access and benefit from YMCA resources!
