Strategic Plan

Vision Statement

The Old Colony YMCA has been saving and enriching lives, and building a strong community for over 125 years!  Our experience and history tells us that the success of the Y depends on our ability to remain not only forward-looking and committed to growth, but also strategically positioned to adapt to the ever-changing needs of the people in the communities we serve.

To that end, the Strategic Priorities that provide a framework for decision-making and investing our resources for the time period of 2011 through 2015 were honed and refined under the leadership and guidance of our Board of Directors in partnership with staff and volunteers.

These priorities build upon our legacy of service and the principles of positive youth development, are focused on measurable outcomes and solutions, and are designed to improve the quality of life for all children, teens, adults, seniors and families throughout our service area.

During the period 2011 through 2015, we will focus on the following strategic priorities:
