Welcome to our YMCA
Being part of our Southington-Cheshire Community YMCAs is much more than joining a gym, taking a swim, enrolling in child care programs or going to day camp.
To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind, and body for all.
OUR VALUES & OUR CAUSE
Our cause is to strengthen the foundation of our community through youth development, healthy Living and social responsibility. Additionally, we do this through instilling our Y values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility into our programs, staff and volunteers. What sets the Y apart is our 90 plus years of community service as a charitable organization, dedicated to creating opportunities to enhance the quality of living within the community. The programs at our YMCA encourage healthy lifestyles and are accessible to ALL regardless of financial circumstance. When you join the YMCA you become a member of a worldwide organization whose mission is to help children, families and communities reach their greatest potential. YMCA membership and involvement represents not only an investment in yourself, but also in your community
DIVERSITY & INCLUSION
The Y is made up of people of all ages and from every walk of life working side by side to strengthen communities.
Together we work to ensure that everyone, regardless of ability, age, cultural background, ethnicity, faith, gender, gender identity, ideology, income, national origin, race or sexual orientation has the opportunity to reach their full potential with dignity.
Our core values are caring, honesty, respect and responsibility - they guide everything we do.
STAFF & VOLUNTEERS WHO CARE
The Southington-Cheshire Community YMCA employs nearly 400 staff and recruits over 600 volunteers. Our YMCA staff and volunteers are well-trained, certified in their field and are caring and committed individuals. Every day, we strive to live the YMCA’s mission to deliver the values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility in all that we do.
COUNTLESS OPPORTUNITIES EXIST
To maximize your YMCA experience and membership to the fullest, you can also give back and reach out to your community as a Y Volunteer or through various Y philanthropic opportunities. Giving of your time, treasure or talent makes it possible for your Y to continue to provide the programs and services it offers. Equally important, it allows you to grow personally and experience the joy of giving.
