BUILDING MORE CREATIVITY MIDDLESEX YMCA WINTER/SPRING 2017 PROGRAM GUIDE 1


WHY WE ARE HERE FOR YOUTH DEVELOPMENT

All kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve under the guidance of adults who care about them and believe in their potential. We see every interaction with young people as an opportunity for learning and development.

FOR HEALTHY LIVING

Health and well-being are all about balance. That’s why we help people and families build and maintain healthy habits for spirit, mind and body in their everyday lives. By helping kids, adults, families and seniors from all backgrounds improve their health and well-being, we build a stronger community.

FOR SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

With our doors open to all, we work every day to connect people from all backgrounds and support those who need us most. We take on the most urgent needs in our community and inspire a spirit of service in return. Our members, volunteers, supporters and staff demonstrate the power of what we can achieve by giving back together.

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE – OPEN DOORS The Middlesex YMCA is a non-profit health and human services organization which offers high quality programs, services and facilities that are made accessible to individuals and families of all income levels through our Open Doors membership.
