IT IS ONLY THROUGH THE GENEROSITY OF OTHERS THAT THE NSYMCA IS ABLE TO GIVE BACK TO THE COMMUNITY!

Volunteers are the heart of the Y; without their selflessness, we couldn’t do the work we do every day to help kids, families, and communities thrive.

We, therefore, aim to bring together people from all walks of life around a shared purpose to do good, creating a stronger, more cohesive community. Together we’re building a better us!

  • In 1844, industrialized London was a place of great turmoil and despair. For the young men who migrated to the city from rural areas to find jobs, London offered a bleak landscape of tenement housing and dangerous influences.

    Twenty-two-year-old George Williams, a farmer-turned-department store workers, was troubled by what he saw. He joined 11 friends to organize the first Young Men’s Christian Association (YMCA), a refuge of Bible study and prayer for young men seeking escape from the hazards of life on the streets.

    Although an association of young men meeting around a common purpose was nothing new, the Y offered something unique for its time. The organization’s drive to meet social need in the community was compelling, and it’s openness to members crossed the rigid lines separating English social classes.

    Years later, retired Boston sea captain Thomas Velentine Sullivan, working as a marine missionary, noticed a similar need to create a safe “home away from home” for sailors and merchants. Inspired by the stories of the Y in England, he led the information of the first U.S. YMCA at the Old South Church in Boston on December 29, 1851.
