Our History


“The FOOTHILLS AREA YMCA has a proud heritage formed on the campus of Clemson University in 1894.  For 125 years, the Y has served thousands of children and families in Clemson, Central and Oconee County, providing programs and resources that help to strengthen our community.  We hope you join us in celebrating this milestone!  The event will be a celebration of our past, our present and glimpse into our future.”
