MISSION STATEMENT

The Alliance of Massachusetts YMCAs, Inc. exists to promote, support, and protect member YMCAs as premier not-for-profit charitable community service organizations in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.  

OUR PURPOSE

The Alliance of Massachusetts YMCA's, by influencing public policy and connection to evidenced based solutions, supports and advocates on behalf of its member Ys to share their collective impact with one voice to solve critical social issues in the areas of Youth Development, Healthy Living, and Social Responsibility.

WELCOME

The Massachusetts YMCAs serve 1.2 million people across the Commonwealth. With over 410 service locations, there are 370,000 children and teens being served, providing a wide range of activities to nurture their potential and ensure their success. With over 21,000 volunteers with 333,700 hours and over 16,000 employees, the Y is making a difference in all of the communities it serves.

With a focus on Youth Development, Healthy Living, and Social Responsibility, the Alliance of Massachusetts YMCAs serves all YMCA branches in the state by advocating on their behalf and providing a multitude of programs across the state. The Alliance of MA YMCAs are part of the Pioneering Healthier Communities work, an effort to create a healthier Massachusetts by facilitating conversations, passing policy, and running programs around physical activity and healthy eating. The Alliance of MA YMCAs also works in conjunction with early education and after school care providers to advocate for a reduction in the income-eligible waitlist and an increase in the salary reserve for early education teachers. The Alliance has been working with the local Y’s to have a positive impact on the achievement gap in Massachusetts, in order to ensure that all our children served can read atthe appropriate grade level. Additionally we address youth at risk, childhood obesity, and prevention of child abuse. Together the YMCAs in Massachusetts have created over 1100 policy changes.

Together we believe we can continue to serve our Massachusetts communities in creating a healthy and positive Commonwealth for our future generations.

Legislation designed to protect children against sexual abuse was passed on January 2nd by Governor Patrick. Youth serving organizations in Massachusetts such as the YMCAs, Massachusetts Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Children (MSPCC), MA Boys and Girls Clubs, and Mass Mentoring among others helped push legislation through the legislature. The legislation creates a task force to protect Massachusetts children against sexual abuse.

As most of our Ys report back their Youth at Risk (YAR) data, we are excited to see the great results our Y programs create in their communities. The Y is for Youth Development, Healthy Living, and Social Responsibility.
