Sussex County YMCA

FREE! Middle School Membership


Middle School Membership Brochure


Metropolitan YMCA of the Oranges is pleased to offer 6th, 7th and 8th grade students a free membership to support and encourage youth to live healthy lifestyles and make responsible choices.


 Research shows that middle school is a critical time in a young person’s life when exposure to risk factors greatly increases. Risk factors are conditions or influences that have been shown to increase the likelihood for unhealthy behaviors including substance abuse, delinquency, teen pregnancy, school drop-out and violence. It is also during the early teen years that youth begin to distance themselves from family and positive support systems.

The Y makes accessible the support and opportunities that empower youth to reach their personal potential. We also provide youth with the knowledge, skills, character and passion to be more active in the community as adults.
