Introducing a Better Way to Belong to the Y
With the YMCA's new Member Referral Program called "Better Together", it pays to help your friends and loved ones stay healthy and active as a member of the Y.
How it Works: Give 20% Get 20%
All members of the Dorchester Family YMCA who have been members for at least 15 days and who pay their monthly membership dues through credit card or bank draft can invite friends to join the Y.
When your friends or loved ones join, you will both receive 20% off your monthly membership dues for as long as you both are members!
This offer cannot be combined with other discounts.
SAVINGS FOR LIFE!
You and your friend keep your 20% monthly discount for as long as you both are members. Should one of you leave the Y, the other will have 30 days to find a new referral and continue to receive the discount. You can refer up to 3 friends to the BETTER TOGETHER Referral Program. Having multiple friends on your referral list helps to ensure you keep your 20% monthly discount in the event one of your friends leaves the Y.
