YMCAs, YWCAs, JCCs and BOYS & GIRLS CLUBS

A Look at Trends in YMCAs, YWCAs, JCCs and Boys & Girls Clubs


Usage & Budgets

Last year, 54 percent of YMCA respondents were expecting to see an increase in the number of people using their facility in 2008 over 2007. This year, 63.1 percent reported such an increase. That trend reverses when it comes to 2008 to 2009, when 60 percent last year were anticipating an increase, and just 52.5 percent this year expect one.

That said, respondents from YMCAs were among those most likely to report an increase in usage from 2007 to 2008, as well as from 2009 to 2010, when 63 percent expect an increase. (See Figure 51.)
