The YMCA Northeast Youth Center, commonly the Northeast YMCA, is a recreational center at 628 Red Lane Road in Birmingham's Roebuck neighborhood, which is operated by the YMCA of Greater Birmingham.

The center opened in 1965.

In 2023 the center, headed by Terri Harvill, offered pre-kindergarten, after-school and summer enrichment classes as well as youth sports, swimming, and day camp programs. It also held exercise classes for adults and seniors.

That year YMCA announced a major updating of the Northeast YMCA, intended as a national model. The building was expanded with two new classroom spaces. Outside three playgrounds, two community gardens, a splash pad and an athletic field were added.

In addition to renovations of the center itself, nearby area will have 23 new affordable homes constructed by Habitat for Humanity and a pediatric clinic operated by Christ Health Center. Other program partners included Impact Family Counseling. The nonprofit Regions Foundation financially supported the project.
