About the Old Colony YMCA

The Old Colony YMCA is a non-profit, charitable association established in 1887. We distinguish ourselves from other organizations by providing values based programs that strengthen the spirit, mind and body for everyone in the 31 Southeastern Massachusetts communities we serve.  Currently, 103,000 individuals in our service area use our facilities annually.  We are the largest child care provider in the region, with more than forty sites from which we serve more than 2,000 children daily.

Our Mission

Our mission is to assist all people (members, clients, employees, volunteers, contributors and partners) to develop to their fullest potential by providing programs that are progressive and responsive to their needs.

No one is ever turned away from the Old Colony Y due to an inability to pay.

Our Core Values

As our traditional social values continue to be challenged and refined over time, the Old Colony YMCA is proud to remain steadfast in its support of the values of CARING, HONESTY, RESPONSIBILITY, and RESPECT. We will continue to teach these values and demonstrate them in word and deed.

Our Beliefs

We strongly believe that the quality of life has spiritual, emotional and physical components. Furthermore, we believe that each community is only as healthy as the collective well being of its members. Because of these beliefs, the Old Colony Y is committed to the development of strong spirit, mind and body, guided by Judeo-Christian principles, to enrich the quality of life for everyone in the communities we serve.

A Tradition of Volunteers

Volunteers have always played a critical role at the Old Colony Y. We couldn't accomplish all that we do without the commitment of our dedicated volunteers. There are many volunteer opportunities available in areas such as Youth Sports, Aquatics, Special Events, and Camp, just to name a few. Ask our member services staff for more information!
