In addition to health and wellness centers, we operate two youth overnight camps and a family camp in new hampshire.

In addition, more than 500 participants engaged in english as a second language for recent immigrants.

A new partnership we are excited about is our role in the Boston community hub schools. The model intentionally looks at its assets and opportunities to take action to make their school community the best it can be. Families and the community are empowered and encouraged to be partners in what happens in the school and a ymca community hub school staff member is on site to support the school community.
The ymca of Greater Boston has a long and successful history of providing pre-school, after-school and summer development, educational, recreational and social activities for youth of all ages. In our early education program, children from all backgrounds are brought together to be nurtured, nourished, loved and celebrated. Diversity is strength and creativity and critical thinking flourish. A holistic, play-based curriculum allows our teachers to follow each child's interest, while building essential skills, strength and resilience. We understand that healthy children need healthy bodies and healthy minds. (continued on schedule o)for school age before and afterschool programs in local public schools and at community sites, the ymca of Greater Boston is the largest provider of state licensed childcare in Massachusetts. Programs are held during afterschool hours, school vacations, on certain holidays and teacher professional development days. Our staff lead activities that promote cooperation and character development. In our summer camp programs, we take a whole-child approach, and round out their summer experience with invigorating sports and swimming instruction that promotes physical well-being, exploration of the community which fosters social and emotional growth, while seamlessly weaving literacy, math, and science lessons into our curriculum. Kids can't help but develop life-long love of learning and friendship at our camps and benefit from reduced summer learning loss.
