Johnson Y Celebates 76 Years of Neighborhood TLC

Volunteers enjoy sharing resources with the hundreds in attendance for the reunion.

Holding court for 76 years in the Northside”s Cleveland Road community, the James Weldon Johnson YMCA held their annual family reunion bringing together generations who have made the beloved institution a family legacy.  Family, friends and members gathered to reminisce and enjoy activities for the entire family.  Attendees were treated to everything from swimming, face painting, and a teen zone to line dancing and a voter registration booth.

The center has always been a hub for African Americans on the northside to connect with the centers health fitness programs and other community resources. The centers youth (ages 13 – 19) also receive assistance with their homework and academics study’s with the opportunity to explore the campus Teen STEAM lab. The lab holds a gaming room, lounge, teaching kitchen, recording studio and multi-use space.  Area seniors enjoy staying active with  online/inperson fitness classes and access to thousands of gyms across the country through the Silver Sneakers program.
