Never been a member? Haven't been to one of our Ys in a while? We invite you to take a tour and see firsthand all that we have to offer.

If you're coming downtown to tour the Bear Levin Studer Y, you can park in the Southtowne Garage, right across the street. Note your license plate number, and you can validate it upon entry, so there's no cost to you. Other locations offer ample parking lot space.

At the Y, membership means so much more than just exercise. Your Y membership opens the door to the whole Y experience and offers you the chance to be an important part of a diverse community of people committed to making Northwest Florida a great place to live, work and play. Our membership gives you the flexibility to pay on a month-to-month basis and make changes when life demands it. Plus, we never ask you to sign a contract.

As the leading nonprofit committed to strengthening communities through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the Y offers everyone the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. By being an active part of the Y, we can grow stronger individually and collectively. When you join our Y, you become part of an organization that has made a difference in Northwest Florida for more than 100 years.
