The Y (formerly YMCA) has made a positive difference to thousands of families but not everyone fully understands the impact.
The Y support families throughout their lives - from taking their first steps at one of our Early Learning Centres, throughout a busy active childhood, creating tomorrow's leaders with our youth development programme, to guiding people's fitness and health journey throughout adulthood and specialised senior support, we are here for our community.
Participation numbers only tell part of the story of the Y Family. Here we share stories that are the real essence of what The Y stands for.
In December 2020, we launched our quarterly newsletter - Aroha Nui (with much love) from us to you. A small token of our appreciation for all the support we get from our community, something we will never take for granted. Thank you for being a part of our Y family.
We hope you enjoy reading each edition as much as we enjoy sharing this with you. Click here to read.
