In partnership with the Armed Services YMCA, YMCAs nationwide are proud to offer memberships to eligible military personnel/families through the Department of Defense’s Military Outreach Initiative (MOI). The Military Outreach Initiative offers service members and military families extra support and access to vital resources. It’s another way of giving back to those who dedicate themselves to serving our country.

The MOI is available to service members currently serving in the departments of the Army, Air Force, Marine Corps and Navy that fall into one of the four program categories:

  • Families of deployed Title 10 Army National Guard or Reservist in any military

  • Title 10 Active Duty Independent Duty personnel (Families or single);

  • Relocated spouses/dependent children of deployed Title 10 Active Duty personnel;

  • Title 10 Active Duty Community Based Warrior in Transition Unit (CBWTU) (Families
    or Single)

We also offer additional military value added membership benefits:

  • Never pay a joining fee - a savings of $50 

  • Special military membership rates (for those not eligible for MOI)
