The Y is for everyone. Our programs, services and initiatives enable kids to realize their potential, offer ways for families to have fun together, and empower people to be healthier in spirit, mind and body. We welcome and embrace newcomers and help foster a nationwide service ethic. And that’s just the beginning.
The Y nurtures the potential of every child and teen by supporting their unique youth development journey through holistic programming. From cradle to career, the Y provides all youth with the tools and resources they need to succeed in life. The Y. For a better us.
Diversity and Inclusion Statement
The Hampshire Regional YMCA is an inclusive organization open to all. We welcome all people regardless of ability, age, background, ethnicity/race, faith, gender, gender identity or sexual orientation. The Y believes that, in a diverse world, we are stronger when we are inclusive, when our doors are open to all and when everyone has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.
We work proactively and collaboratively to build organization and individual capacity, as inclusion is important to our strategy and impact. We welcome individuals with diverse abilities and if reasonable accommodations or modifications are needed, please contact our ADA Compliance Officer, Ivy Lenihan.
