Welcome to the Valley Shore YMCA. I am honored to the be Chief Executive Officer at the Valley Shore YMCA and proud of the work we do to strengthen community. I can not think of a more exciting, cause-driven organization to belong to, raise a family, work, volunteer, or donate to.
Since 1917, the Valley Shore Y has served families on the Shoreline in countless ways, including swim lessons, camp, teen nights, adult fitness, childcare, cancer survivor programs, a community garden and so much more.
Today, our community is going through unprecedented challenges, and I am enormously proud of how our Y and our entire community has worked together to overcome many of the challenges we face. I am humbled by the ongoing support as our team has worked tirelessly behind the scenes to build and open our new state of the art Brady Wellness Center.
The mission of the Y is still very much at work in our community. Services provided by the Y are not just programs that are appreciated by our members, but to many they are essential to their well-being or the overall strength and success of their family. At the YMCA, we are for:
Youth Development: Nurturing the potential of every child and teen. At our YMCA, we provide a safe, fun environment for children during after school programs to give working parents piece of mind; help children discover friendships and build confidence at summer camp, and ensure that every child can safely enjoy water activities for life; and much, much more.
Healthy Living: Improving the Shoreline’s health and well-being. The Valley Shore YMCA is committed to helping adults, children, and families of all ages and abilities lead healthy, active lifestyles. We help cancer survivors feel alive again, ensure that seniors are active older adults, help individuals lose weight and gain confidence, provide the best darn tri club on the planet and more.
Social Responsibility. Giving back and providing support to our neighbors. We offer volunteer opportunities for members to give back to their community through both the YMCA and other non-profits. We grow fresh, organic produce in our community garden and give it all away. Our financial aid program ensures that all YMCA programs and services are available to anyone, regardless of ability to pay.
If you are considering joining, donating, or volunteering at our YMCA, I invite you to give me a call, as I would be honored to speak with you.
