Our goal is to strengthen the foundations of community through healthy living, social responsibility, and youth development.
We are a powerful association of men, women, and children joined by a shared commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living, and fostering a sense of social responsibility. We believe that lasting personal and social change can only occur when we work together to invest in our children, our neighbors, and our own health. That’s why, at the Y, strengthening community is our cause. Every day, we work side-by-side with our neighbors throughout the five boroughs to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income, or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow, and thrive.
