Who We Are

When we say the YMCA SHARJAH builds “strong families,” it’s not just a slogan. It’s a tradition, a daily fact of life and a point of great pride.

The YMCA SHARJAH is at the heart of strong communities in Sharjah. We provide affordable and accessible programs to more than 100,000 children, teens, adults and seniors every year, thanks to all dedicated members and supporters.

We are building a strong future for young people and teens. We serve more youth than any other non-profit in Sharjah with an array of diversion, leadership development, skill building and healthy lifestyle programs. The YMCA SHARJAH is laying a strong educational foundation for our children.  And, we are contributing to a stronger, more inclusive local economy. We help 4,000 individuals a year from different countries learn to participate in our community.
The YMCA SHARJAH has become the largest provider of social services for children and families in UAE as well as in India.  By working hard to successfully meet the changing needs of children and families, our people and our services are increasingly viewed as a true community benefit by average citizens and civic leaders alike.
