Our Focus

Every day thousands of people walk through the doors of our branches and child care centers. While each may come to the YMCA with their own unique needs and goals, our goal for serving them is the same. Our Y’s are so much more than just a place to work out and swim. The YMCA of Metro North transforms lives and strengthens the communities we serve through Youth Development, Healthy Living and Social Responsibility.

In our strategic plan, we outline our goals to build the leadership capacity in our organization to strengthen our role as a regional resource and serve as a hub that actively supports the needs of our community.

Strategic Plan

Volunteer Interest

Youth Development

All kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve, under the guidance of caring adults who believe in their potential. We see every interaction with young people as an opportunity for learning and development – all grounded in the Y’s core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.

Healthy Living

We help people and families build and maintain healthy habits for spirit, mind and body in their everyday lives. By helping kids, adults, families and seniors from all walks of life improve their health and well-being, we build a stronger community.

Social Responsibility

With our doors open to all, we bring together people from all backgrounds, and support those who need us most. We take on the most urgent needs in our community and inspire a spirit of service in return. Our members, volunteers, supporters and staff demonstrate the power of what we can achieve.

For a better you. For a better community. For a better us.TM
