YMCA of Central and Northern Westchester County

YMCA of Central and Northern Westchester County

As the nation’s leading nonprofit for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility their core values include Caring, Respect, Honesty, and Responsibility. Their kids learn and thrive in a safe and fun environment that promotes self-esteem, personal responsibility and positive life choices. It is a charitable, not-for-profit organization that welcomes all people regardless of age, race, religion or economic status and strives to enrich each and every life through a unique, dynamic combination of programs that strengthens spirit, mind and body. 

Volunteerism is the backbone of YMCA work locally, nationally and internationally. The good work and powerful impact YMCAs have on their communities is a direct result of the partnership between staff and volunteers. Whether you serve on a board or teach a child to swim, your time is spent making a difference in someone's life.
