We are committed to being the leader in improving the quality of life for members of our community by providing cause-driven programs for individuals and families focusing on youth development, healthy living, and on social responsibility.
The Y – a leading nonprofit committed to youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility –exists to strengthen our community. Joining the Y means belonging to a cause that gives children, adults, and families the opportunity to learn and grow, while also making communities healthier and stronger. A membership with the Y means more. YMCA programs are specifically designed to develop the whole person in spirit, mind, and body. Our programs include early childhood education, before and after school care, summer camp, youth sports, health and wellness activities for members of all ages, swim lessons, and teen leadership programs as well as our very successful competitive swim team. Every day, the Y addresses the most pressing needs in our community by making sure that everyone has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. The YMCA of Greater Westfield is accessible to all people. To ensure that everyone has the opportunity to engage with the Y, we offer financial assistance to those in need. Last year through our financial assistance program we helped over 1000 families and children by providing over $250,000 in scholarships.
