Mission The New Haven YMCA Youth Center is a branch of the Central Connecticut Coast YMCA. Our mission is to put Judeo-Christian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all. The Y makes accessible the support and opportunities that empower people and communities to learn, grow and thrive. With a focus on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the Y nurtures the potential of every youth and teen, improves the nation’s health and well-being, and provides opportunities to give back and support neighbors.
Background Since 1859 the Central Connecticut Coast Y branches have served as community centers in the heart of the 25 towns we serve. Much of the Central Connecticut Coast Y’s work is supported by membership dues, program fees and grants, but central to our mission is the commitment to make the Y affordable and accessible to all, regardless of ability to pay. The YMCA reaches an exceptionally diverse group of individuals, providing thousands of deserving families, new immigrants, and at-risk young people with the resources and services they need to lead happy, healthy, and productive lives as citizens of our communities. The YMCA is known for its quality community programs that provide our neighbors with access to affordable and accessible wellness options. In addition to promoting general health and wellness, YMCA programs teach critical life skills (swimming), promote teamwork and leadership skills (basketball), afford opportunities for intergenerational interaction (Y Family Fun Nights), and provide a safe, nurturing space for area residents. Our philosophy that no one is turned away due to their inability to pay is something that each and every staff member takes very seriously. We believe that an individual's economic status should not limit their access to a variety of activities. This driving philosophy makes YMCA programs even more critical to the general health and well-being of our community. The Y is, and always will be, dedicated to building healthy, confident, connected and secure children, adults, families and communities. Every day our impact is felt when an individual makes a healthy choice, when a mentor inspires a child and when a community comes together for the common good.
Impact Through our programs and services, we strive to instill the four core character development values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility. Our YMCA branches offer a variety of programs and services, including child care, fitness programs, sports leagues, swimming, summer day and resident camps, and low-income housing with support services. Some of our accomplishments include: Preschool Childcare programs help youngsters gain self-confidence and social skills while developing positive attitudes about school and learning. Many are from single-parent families with low earning power who have a critical need for childcare in order to work. After School Child Care programs teach positive values through role models, group activities and creative thought. Children enjoy supervised activities such as sports, arts and crafts, music, and drama rather than the company of the TV set or the local street corner.  Teen Programs focus on personal development, life skills and leadership qualities in our young people. One of the best examples is our Teen Leaders Club for middle-school children. Youth, with the input of Y staff, plan social activities, fundraisers, service-learning projects, field trips and more.Youth and Government gives high school students the opportunity to learn firsthand about local and state governments. Youth write bills, participate in mock- elections and take over the state capitol for one weekend each year to put their learnings into action.Summer programs offer 4- to 14-year-old children a unique experience, while providing a desperately needed child care service for working parents in the summertime. Many single-parent families struggle to keep their jobs and be assured that their children are safe and involved in a culturally stimulating environment during the summer. Resident Camp and Environmental Education programs engage more than 800 youth each summer in high quality, affordable camp programs. Affordable Housing initiatives allow the YMCA to provide 450 units of affordable housing to serve homeless and special needs populations.
Needs

Since our founding, the New Haven YMCA Youth Center has been dedicated to making a positive impact in people’s lives through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.  We see it happen every day.


Last year, our Y reached out and helped more than 270 young people throughout New Haven. We provided $341,460 in subsidized or free programs and services that foster youth development, promote healthy living, and encourage social responsibility.

For the past 154 years, our community has come to rely on us for childcare, summer camp, physical education, scholarships for teens, and other programs that help children to grow and thrive regardless of age, income, gender, or background.

CEO Statement The Central Connecticut Coast YMCA serves more people, in more ways, and in more communities than any other single non-profit organization. With over 86,000 members and program participants in a 25-town area, the Y provides value-based services to thousands of families annually. Y donors have many giving options. They may support a specific Y program that has benefitted their family, or direct their gift to their local YMCA and strengthen the lives of families in their neighborhood. Donors can contribute to the physical and financial growth and stability of the organization with a capital campaign gift, or by making an annual cash gift. Forward-thinking donors join the Heritage Society, knowing their planned giving will secure our ability to grow and plan into the future. Donors who give to the Annual Strong Kids Campaign know that every dollar they invest is used to expand Y programs to those in greatest need. Whatever their manner of giving, our donors understand that a gift to the Central Connecticut YMCA is an investment in this community’s most important assets—its children and families.

Programs
Description The best measure of our community’s health is the health of our children. The experts tell us that children who are involved in youth programs are the healthiest of all. At the Y, we know that real strength isn’t only about physical fitness. Truly strong kids not only feel good about themselves, they are also able to develop skills, make decisions, set goals, and learn how to achieve in their own manner. Children grow strong in spirit, mind and body in our youth sports programs and swim lessons. In each program, such as basketball, baseball, soccer, dance, martial arts, and floor hockey, children learn the fundamentals of the sport. We promote a non-competitive environment in which everybody plays and everybody wins. To us, good sportsmanship, self confidence and teamwork are more important than winning or losing.

Description Research demonstrates that after school programs keep youth safe and engaged in positive behaviors. Juvenile crime and victimization goes up during after school hours, in particular, youth are most likely to engage in risky behavior from 3-6pm. Given the high rates of violent crimes committed by and against young people, it is critical to get youth off the streets. Additionally, activities promoting self esteem, social competency, and team building are essential to positive youth development and redirecting violent behaviors, especially when our youth are constantly in “survival mode.” Positive social competency steers youth away from negative behaviors. Furthermore, the ongoing presence of significant adults provides a positive social development environment vital to their growth.

Description Summer day camp programs offer children a unique experience in day camping, while providing a desperately needed child care service for working parents in the summertime.  Many single-parent families struggle to keep their jobs and be assured that their children are safe and involved in a culturally stimulating environment during the summer.  Knowing that their children are safe at our camps, making friends and having fun, makes going to work that much easier for working families.  Similarly, an overnight camp experience provides kids with opportunities to develop lifelong friendships, establish relationships with counselors from all over the world, be exposed to new activities in which they might not ever have the chance to participate elsewhere and strengthen their self-esteem as they build new skills. It is a time where youth can learn about themselves in a safe, structured and purposeful environment away from home.

Ensure Health & Wellness

A healthy community is a rich community. When we enjoy good health, when we engage in wellness activities – and when we support people living with disease or disabilities -- there are profound physical and psychological benefits. Simply put, we are all stronger and happier. To support the health and wellness initiatives in your community is to put good health within reach of all.

Nurture Children & Youth

When families, schools and communities take the view that children and youth are valued and respected assets to society, they necessarily support environments that nurture youth development. Children raised to embrace positive social values, to seek self-understanding, and to value their self-worth grow to become community-minded young adults with a sense of belonging and a belief in their resiliency. See how you can help our community's children grow into tomorrow's leaders.
