We’re expanding a campus and strengthening our community.

The partnership between the YMCA and Ivy Tech Community College is reshaping the campus and opportunities for students like never before.

Experience a partnership where everyone grows.

Because they’re so close to the Lafayette Family YMCA, Ivy Tech students can enjoy the benefits of a full fitness center and childcare on their campus for the first time. With these amenities, retention rates are expected to increase so more students can succeed!

Beyond these benefits, students from Ivy Tech are able to gain practical experience by applying the skills they learn in YMCA programs like healthcare, childcare, or business programs with shared partners.

How can the Y impact students?

Healthcare

Ivy Tech students focusing on healthcare degrees, such as nursing, are invited to partner with Franciscan St. Elizabeth Health and IU Health in the Creasy Lane facility.

With pediatric services, health education programs, and much more, these partnerships allow students to get real-world experience right next door to Ivy Tech's campus.

Childcare

At the YMCA, we provide excellent, state-licensed childcare and preschool. Early childhood education majors have the opportunity to gain experience by working with the children at the Y.

Students in Ivy Tech Community College programs can enjoy a convenient location while serving the children of the YMCA in the most valuable way they can.

Business

Business students from Ivy Tech Community College can gain experience by assisting with partnership programs such as tax preparation, advising, Junior Achievement for kids, and more.

By participating in programs like this, students are able to serve children as well as low- and moderate-income community members.

Fitness

Ivy Tech students have the luxury of having a state-of-the-art fitness center right next door to the main Lafayette, Indiana campus.

Students can easily work off a stressful day, meet with friends for a group class, volunteer, or grab a pickup game. Plus, with childcare and the Kids Zone right on the Y’s campus, it makes it easy to bring the kids along!
