Philosophy Group – Public

We Can Not Solve Our Problems
With the Same Thinking We Used When We Created Them

You’re invited to join us once a week when the world’s current events, hot topics and mysteries take center stage as the Philosophy Group meets on Saturday’s starting at 9:00 am in the community room.

The Philosophy Club at the Saginaw Y is a community benefit that will engage, enlighten, and challenge individuals to say “what if”.

Social responsibility is one of the key missions of the Saginaw Family YMCA…and it distinguishes us from our for-profit colleagues in the health and fitness world. Creating a high-value, affordable place for our members to belong is critical to us…and so is our commitment to bettering the communities around us.
