Military Outreach

You do so much to keep our country safe.
It’s our turn to give back to you.

As an affiliate of the Armed Services YMCA, the First Coast YMCA strengthens our military family by providing programs and services to the young men and women of all five armed services: Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, and Coast Guard.


Thanks to generous donors across the First Coast and grant-funding, our YMCA is able to offer exclusive membership rates for active duty members of the armed forces (including National Guard and Reservists), veterans and their families.

You’ll save up to up to $57/month on membership fees, plus we’ll waive your joining fee (up to $100 savings). You can choose one First Coast YMCA location or get access to all locations on the First Coast.

Get outside and explore nature in your local community! On our Sierra Club Military Outdoor Adventures, you’ll grow your community close to home with others who have also served. Plus, according to the CDC, “Staying physically active is one of the best ways to keep your mind and body healthy.” Spend some time in nature so you can take a pause, clear your mind, and focus on the things that matter most to you.

Supporting Their Sacrifice


At the First Coast Y, it is our vision to become the most military friendly YMCA in the country by offering programs and services that directly benefit the military, veterans and their families in the communities we serve.

Program Needs

  • $1M annually for scholarships
  • $50,000 to support our Back-to-School Bash
  • $10,000 to support our Afterschool Care & Early Learning programs
