  • Mission:
  • 92nd Street Y is one of the world’s leading cultural and community centers, dedicated to promoting individual and family development and participation in civic life within the context of Jewish values and American pluralism.

  • Overview:
  • Founded in 1874, 92nd Street Y enriches lives, creates community, and elevates humanity. More than 400,000 people visit 92Y’s New York City venues annually, and millions more join us through the Internet, satellite broadcasts, and other digital media.

    The 92nd Street Y is dedicated to enriching the lives of its visitors through stimulating performances and events, award-winning arts education, Jewish life programs, and interactive learning activities that enable visitors to explore their creative talents and interests. 92Y operates one of the largest community outreach programs of all New York City cultural institutions, providing valuable educational resources, teacher training, and on-site development programs to more than 8,000 public school students each year with more than 100,000 hours of instruction. 92Y also offers extensive subsidy programs for senior, family, under-35, and student audiences, and awards approximately $1,000,000 annually in scholarship support to families and students in need. For these—and many other accomplishments—92Y has been recognized as an anchor institution in New York and one of the nation’s leading centers to study, create, and enjoy the arts.

  • History:
  • Founded in 1874, 92nd Street Y serves its community and the world in a remarkable way, providing exceptional programs across the spectrum—in the arts and culture, Jewish life and education, health and fitness, personal growth and travel, and in classes for adults, families and children.

    As a nonprofit community and cultural center, 92Y strives to meet emerging social needs. In the 1870s, 92Y began offering free adult education classes, and later went on to pioneer new programs, including a nursery school (1938), activities for senior citizens (1950), the nation’s first Parenting Center (1978) and a camp for autistic children (1987). Groundbreaking programs in the arts, religion and public affairs enable diverse audiences to pursue a variety of interests at 92Y’s uptown and Tribeca locations, while educational outreach programs share 92Y's abundant resources with students in New York City's public schools.

    Programs at 92nd Street Y are designed for people of all ages. Home to the first Parenting Center in the United States, 92Y provides valuable services to infants and small children, as well as their mothers and fathers. Children are uniquely enriched by our nursery school, after-school programs and camps, and adults of every age partake in the full gamut of physical, intellectual and cultural pursuits. In every aspect of our programming, families and generations are able to come together to enrich their lives.

    Founded by German Jewish professionals, 92Y honors Jewish faith and culture by sharing it with the world. People of every background and affiliation can find a comfortable way to connect with their heritage at 92Y. Everyone who comes to 92Y benefits from what we represent—a passion for ideas, a demand for excellence, a commitment to service and a respect for creative expression.
