We’re for Youth Development, Healthy Living and Social Responsibility.

Dedicated to our community since 1948, the Johnston YMCA provides diverse and dynamic programs. The branch was named by David Johnston in memory of his father, Horace Johnston. The facility was built as the community center for the mill families living in north Charlotte.

Today, the Johnston YMCA, located in the heart of the NoDa Arts District, is convenient to North Charlotte neighborhoods like Plaza Midwood, Elizabeth, Chantilly, Belmont, Uptown and N. Tryon Street.
