Welcome to YMCA Dublin

Dublin YMCA has been helping vulnerable young people in Dublin’s Inner City for over 160 years.

Youth work, education, family support programmes, community childcare and community employment are just some of the services built into the very core of the YMCA’s existence. We work with young people from créche going age through to youth work, education programmes for those who leave school early.

 

In order to support our charity services we run two social enterprises- Dublin YMCA Gym in two locations (Aungier Street, Dublin 2 and Sandymount, Dublin 4) and YMCA Childcare (full and part time quality affordable childcare service).

Dublin YMCA is open to all regardless of faith, social class, ethnicity, age or gender. Our mission is dedicated to the growth of all persons in spirit, mind and body. We value a sense of responsibility to each other and the global community.
