Our Y

Our Mission

We know that lasting personal and social change comes about when we all work together. That’s why, at the Y, strengthening community is our cause. Every day, we work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.

Our Vision

The Y is, and always will be, dedicated to building healthy, confident, connected and secure children, adults, families and communities. Every day our impact is felt when an individual makes a healthy choice, when a mentor inspires a child, and when a community comes together for the common good.

Our Values

The Y is the nation’s leading nonprofit committed to strengthening communities through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. We’re a spirit, a movement and a cause. 

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.

Our Promise

As the area’s leading nonprofit for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the Meriden-New Britain-Berlin YMCA uses our funds (membership and program dues, grants, donations) to make a meaningful, enduring impact right in your own neighborhood.
