Youth Development

Nurturing the potential of children & teens
Imagine a future built by our children where they truly feel like they belong. Where they are surrounded by a caring community and receive the right kind of academic support, social-emotional development through play, arts, movement & nourishment. From early education to after-school, youth sports and swimming lessons, summer camp to preparing teens for college & beyond – we reimagine a holistic approach to education that empowers our children and others to create the future they want to be a part of.

“My kids have fun every single day they are at the Y. They have been attending since they were four. I can't imagine sending them anywhere else. We all love the Y and it's our family basically!”

Healthy Living

Improving Wallingford’s health & well-being
Our nation & communities are facing a health crisis, and we continue our commitment to step up to help heal and provide hope to those who are struggling with their wellbeing by designing health programs that address the mind, body & spirit. We offer real tools and real support in person, or virtually, to address health disparities and help everyone create healthy habits to make real, long lasting, positive changes.

“I have come a long way from where I started when I joined the Wallingford Family YMCA. I am a great deal happier & healthier today. My whole life is different: it’s better, I am a better person and I am very grateful that the YMCA is here for me.”

Social Responsibility

Giving back & providing support to our neighbors
We demand change & equity by lifting up every member of our community and welcoming everyone with open arms and open minds. We create programs & spaces where our community feels seen, heard and safe. We work with partners in the Wallingford community to address chronic & emergent needs for families in crisis by providing programs, resources, and a caring community that creates stability and inspires hope. We purposefully build bridges between diverse groups of people, ideas & 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.
