Welcoming Week @ Baxter YMCA | Indianapolis | Indiana | United States

We believe our communities are stronger when everyone feels welcome and we work together for the common good.

It’s a chance for neighbors – both immigrants and U.S.-born residents – in Greater Indianapolis to get to know one another and celebrate what unites us as a community!

YMCAs across Central Indiana and throughout the U.S. will be hosting special events all week long. Please join us!
