Meaningful Membership

For over 170 years, America’s first YMCA has been committed to solving our communities’ social issues through strengthening the physical, mental, and spiritual health of all we serve. When you become a member of the YMCA of Greater Boston, you aren’t just doing something good for yourself, you’re also becoming part of a movement to feed, educate and elevate all people so they can achieve their full potential – we call that meaningful membership.

Demanding Equity For All

Social Justice
We demand change and equity by lifting up every member of our community and welcoming everyone with open arms and open minds. We create programs and spaces where our community feels seen, heard and safe. We purposefully build bridges between diverse groups of people, ideas and actions, to make a nation free of racism and inequality. Because if you can’t envision the future you want to have, you can’t create it.
