92nd Street Y is a world-class cultural and community center where people all over the world connect through culture, arts, entertainment and conversation. For over 140 years, we have harnessed the power of arts and ideas to enrich, enlighten and change lives, and the power of community to repair the world.
As a proudly Jewish organization, 92Y enthusiastically welcomes and reaches out to people of all ages, races, faiths and backgrounds while embracing Jewish values like learning and self-improvement, the importance of family, the joy of life, and giving back to our wonderfully diverse and growing community, both locally and around the world.
There is no other place like 92Y.
We are a catalyst, with a mission to inspire action by bringing together today’s most exceptional thinkers and influential partners for social good, like #GivingTuesday, the global day of giving that was created at 92Y, and our professional and international fellowship programs.
We curate conversations with the world’s foremost thought leaders to deepen understanding and engage both the mind and spirit of our audiences – with programs on our stages and shared globally on 92YOnDemand.org.
We are a world-class performing arts center, presenting classical, jazz, popular and world music and a wide variety of dance performances. 92Y is also a legendary literary destination for where the most celebrated writers and discerning readers have gathered since 1939.
We are a studio, school and workshop where dancers, musicians, jewelry-makers, ceramicists, visual artists, poets, playwrights and novelists – acclaimed professionals and eager amateurs both young and old – nourish the human spirit through the arts.
We provide an inspiring, safe and supportive home for children and families, with decades of expertise in early childhood learning, parenting, child development, afterschool sports and classes, special needs programs and summer camps.
We offer senior adults the opportunity for rebirth as part of a vibrant community, with dozens of activities a week ranging from Shakespeare and sculpture to bridge and T’ai Chi.
We bring the arts, literature and sciences to public schools throughout New York City through our school initiatives.
We are a state-of-the-art health, fitness and sports center that encourages people of all ages and abilities to engage in physical activity and find the inspiration to live their healthiest lives.
