Our History

In the mid 1960’s, the Greater Charleroi YMCA and The Monongahela City YMCA merged to form the Mon Valley YMCA and began programming on land donated to the organization in Carroll Township, Pennsylvania. In 1968, the first structure was dedicated on the property at 101 Taylor Run Road, which was the outdoor pool. This, along with a bus on property which doubled as an office, allowed the Mon Valley YMCA to serve children through its summer camp program.

In the early 1970’s, the first building was established which housed some offices and the activity hall. Throughout the rest of the 1970’s, some additional land was donated to the YMCA that was adjacent to the existing property at 101 Taylor Run Road. In 1986, an expansion of the original building opened which contained the gymnasium, racquetball courts, and indoor pool and additional meeting spaces.

In 2004, a second expansion was opened which contained the CFS Bank Wellness Center and Lee Supply Child Learning Center. Additionally, renovations occurred in 2013 and 2022.
