We believe that everyone should have a fair chance to discover who they are and what they can become

We are proud to be a community organisation supporting our area since 1846. YMCA Yorkshire Coast operates from Whitby down to Hornsey. We create supportive, inclusive and energising communities, where young people can truly belong, contribute and thrive.


We are a local charity we are not a national branch, each YMCA is an autonomous organisation with its own community, management and trustees. This is to ensure that the local people are at the heart of what we do.

Flagship Project

YMCA Theatre

Our YMCA Scarborough site is complete with a 290-seat professional standard community theatre.

The Theatre provides voluntary opportunities, first-class entertainment and space for thousands of young people to take their first steps onto the stage.

The majority of theatre staff are voluntary 

The theatre relies on donations and people supporting us to survive
