Building a Better Us

At the Fanwood-Scotch Plains YMCA, we believe everyone should have access to the tools and support they need to learn, grow and thrive. To best serve our community, we focus on:

Youth Development

Nurturing the potential of every child and teen: We believe that all kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they really are and what they can achieve. That’s why, through the Y, millions of youth today are cultivating the values, skills and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health and educational achievement.

Healthy Living

Improving the nation’s well-being: In communities across the nation, the Y is a leading voice on health and well-being. With a mission centered on balance, the Y brings families closer together, encourages good health and fosters connections through fitness, sports, fun and shared interests. As a result, millions of youth, adults and families are receiving the support, guidance and resources needed to achieve greater health and well-being for their spirit, mind and body.

Social Responsibility

Giving back and providing support to our neighbors: Whether developing skills or emotional well-being through education and training, welcoming and connecting diverse demographic populations through global services, or preventing chronic disease and building healthier communities through collaborations with policymakers, the Y fosters the care and respect all people need and deserve.
