Being a non-facility Y means that we do not have a typical swim/gym facility. All of our programs are provided through community partnerships.





5210 Project

The 5210 Project is part of an initiative development by the American Medical Association, Centers for Disease and Prevention, and Maternal and Child Health Bureau to address America’s health crisis of overweight and obese children and families. We received funding from United Way to help educate children at Kiroli, Robinson, Jefferson Elementary, MLK Jr. High, and Richwood Middle.


What is Ouachita Well?


The YMCA in partnership with Monroe City, West Monroe City, Ouachita Parish Police Jury, and the Ouachita Parish School Board has been awarded Challenge Grant funding from the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana Foundation. The award will be used to fund the Ouachita Well Initiative. The purpose of the project is to encourage the citizens of Ouachita Parish to become healthier through increased physical activity and healthier eating habits. The project compliments the YMCA's 5210 program. Strategies will be implemented to encourage:
