There are many ways to focus on wellness — working out, taking a class or simply taking some time for yourself. Here at the Y, we believe focusing on wellness is great for your mind, body and soul. This summer, when you join the YMCA of Greater Boston, you’re also helping us change the life a child in need.

That’s because you’re not only making a commitment to yourself, you’re joining a community of caring people who help us give children in need scholarships, mentors and experiences that could transform their lives forever.

We call it meaningful membership. It’s a way to do something good for yourself, that helps the youth of greater Boston reach for the stars.
