Looking for an opportunity to make a difference in your community while also making valuable connections?  The Benjamin Barnes YMCA is looking for a few good men to join it “Y” Men Club.

The “Y” Men Club has supported youth activities at the Benjamin Barnes YMCA since 1964. Current efforts include assisting with Youth Sports at the Barnes YMCA.

New officers have been elected for the 2020-2021 year, but the group is still looking for 100 men to join the Benjamin Barnes YMCA before Thanksgiving. Meetings are currently held via ZOOM as organization efforts are underway.

Women are encouraged to obtain YMCA memberships as well.  Yearly membership for both men and women is only $120 (or $10 per month) plus a $10 processing fee. That's right, a couple can join for only $20 per month.

It goes without saying that lack of male mentorship and involvement is one of the factors that disrupts development not only in the youth and family structure but also in some communities. Every member of society has a role. When those roles aren’t filled, there is an area that goes lacking.

In addition to filling a void, membership at the YMCA affords the opportunity for neighbors to become acquainted and for business relations to form as members become partners and go on to assist each other in various areas of life and professional development.

The Benjamin Barnes YMCA is a focal point in the West Tuscaloosa community, providing a variety of services including after school programs, health and wellness services, and more.  Visit online or contact Executive Director Lakeda Smith or Membership Chairman Tempera Ryans at (205) 759-4284 or (205) 759-4285.
