Schottland Family YMCA

At the direction of the Monroe County Department of Public Health and the Monroe County Executive, and in the interest of public health, the YMCA of Greater Rochester will suspend operations at all locations until further notice effective, Sunday, March 15, 2020. ----- The next generation of the YMCA is here! This 140,000 square foot state-of-the-art new facility, located at the corner of Clover Street and Jefferson Road, is a nationally recognized collaborative model that will achieve the YMCA mission. One of the greatest misconceptions about the YMCA is that the Y is just a building with a pool and a gym. The reality is that the YMCA is a powerful agent of change focused on strengthening our community. The new Schottland Family Branch is expanding Y services to meet the needs of more individuals, families, children, and seniors.
