The YMCA of South Florida has relationships with local media across South Florida in Broward, Miami-Dade and Monroe counties. As a leading nonprofit with more than 200 afterschool, preschool, special needs, sports, camp and youth programs, family centers, and senior health outreach sites, the Y impacts the community each day, and would love to share those stories of impact with the media and the communities we serve.
If you are a member of the media looking for story ideas, looking for video and photography at the YMCA, or working on a story regarding the YMCA, please contact:
