The YMCA of Greater Boston is dedicated to improving the health of mind, body, and spirit of teens in our communities. We welcome teens of all incomes, faiths and cultures.
The YMCA works to engage, empower and connect teens in our communities with personal and professional development opportunities. Participation in afterschool programs by middle and high school-aged youth can result in higher rates of school graduation and attendance. Our 3 Signature Programs focus on Youth Leadership, Mock Government and College and Career Preparedness. The YMCA of Greater Boston also supports youth in other programs such as fitness and healthy living and arts and enrichment. Our branches provide safe places for youth to spend time out of school and free meals to ALL youth.
