Board of Directors

Board President - Ron yukelson

Associate Administrator/Director Business Development, Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center

Dear Community Member:
Starting when I was a fourth grader going to YMCA Day Camp, to rediscovering the Y in college working as a Day Camp Counselor and then the Day Camp Director, to more than 35 years of volunteer service with the Y, I have found no better organization that provides such a wide scope of services to its community.

The San Luis Obispo YMCA is a special place. Not only do we provide after school programs, activities and summer camp to thousands of individuals each year, we do it across the spectrum from young children in child care to seniors who participate in crafts and physical activity. The San Luis Obispo Y is the after school program to 2,500 youth, summer camp to 600 families and more than 5,000 members countywide from Shandon to Los Osos, Paso Robles to Nipomo.

I invite you to experience the Y either as a participant in one of our many activities, whether it is a game of racquetball at our fitness facility in San Luis Obispo, roller hockey, senior fitness, youth basketball or through your child participating in our award winning Youth in Government program. There's something for everybody at the Y. I invite you to check us out!
