Social Responsibility

Giving back and providing support to our neighbors.

The YMCA of Greater Boston is responding to today’s most critical social needs such as unemployment, education and health care through our programs, people and staff. In doing so the Y is promoting the care and respect of all of our community members. Whether we are providing job skills training through YMCA Training, Inc., teaching English classes at the International Learning Center, or collaborating with health care institutions to prevent chronic disease such as our partnership with Boston Medical Center to combat childhood obesity in Boston youth, we are empowering individuals to become healthy, confident, connected and secure.

The North Suburban YMCA serves the entire community and is open to everyone. Donors enable the North Suburban YMCA, a charitable, non-profit organization in compliance with IRS code 501(c)(3), to offer a financial assistance program for those individuals and families that qualify.
