For Social Development

Welcome to the

Niles-Buchanan YMCA

The Niles-Buchanan YMCA strengthens the foundations of our community through well-being and fitness, camps, swim, sports and play, and other activities for people of all ages, incomes and abilities. We’re more than just a place to work out. At the Y, we help build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all with the core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility at the heart of everything we do.

With a commitment to nurturing youth development, promoting healthy living, and fostering a sense of social responsibility, the Y ensures that every individual has access to the essentials needed to learn, grow and thrive.

The Niles-Buchanan and the Benton Harbor-St. Joseph YMCAs have entered into a Management Agreement beginning June 1, 2016. The Boards of Directors of both YMCAs reached this agreement after the results of a recent study conducted by both YMCAs and YMCA of the USA. The study was initiated after Mike Ahern, CEO of the Benton Harbor-St. Joseph YMCA, announced his retirement earlier this year effective the end of May. Mark Weber, CEO of the Niles-Buchanan YMCA, will provide leadership to the collaboration efforts.


On Saturday, April 30, the Niles-Buchanan YMCA is holding a free community event to inspire kids to stay active. This year marks the 25th year for Healthy Kids Day®, the Y’s national initiative to improve health and well-being for kids and families. This event features activities such as family yoga and boot camp classes, a fitness obstacle course, Zumba classes, bounce house, and many more examples of healthy activities to motivate and teach families how to develop healthy routines at home.


The Greater Southwest Chapter of Credit Unions has awarded a $2,000 grant to the Niles-Buchanan YMCA.

The Chapter raises the funds for these grants at its annual summer golf outing. Recipients must be a 501c3 in the Chapter’s geographic area and their mission and goals must support the overall Credit Union Philosophy of "People Helping People". Grant recipients were determined by a panel of Chapter representatives.


YogaFit is the safe and user-friendly style of yoga for everybody and every body. Transform you life and the lives of others at this upcoming YogaFit teacher training on June 11 & 12 at the Niles-Buchanan YMCA.
