About Us



The MetroWest YMCA is a cause-driven charitable organization that helps people build a healthy spirit, mind, and body.

We serve the towns of Ashland, Framingham, Holliston, Hopkinton, Natick, Sherborn, Sudbury, Wayland, and beyond. 

We promise to nurture the potential of every youth and teen, improve the health and well-being of every MetroWest resident, and give back to the community.





Youth Development

All kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve, under the guidance of caring adults who believe in their potential. We see every interaction with young people as an opportunity for learning and development - all grounded in the Y’s core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility.  

Healthy Living

We help people and families build and maintain healthy habits for spirit, mind, and body in their everyday lives. By helping kids, adults, families, and seniors from all walks of life improve their health and well-being, we build a stronger community.

Social Responsibility

With our doors open to all, we bring together people from all backgrounds and support those who need us most. We take on the most urgent needs in our community and inspire a spirit of service in return. Our members, volunteers, supporters and staff demonstrate the power of what we can achieve by giving back together.


Great things happen in and through the Y!

You may know the Y for our fitness equipment and swimming pools, but did you know we also offer child care to help working families?  Did you know we offer youth sports and activities to help kids learn, grow and thrive?  Did you know our summer camps offer academic enrichment to help prevent summer learning loss?  Did you know that we offer programs aimed at chronic disease prevention, obesity, nutrition and civic engagement among others?  It’s true!  The Y helps people of all ages, abilities and incomes reach their full potential.

We’re everything you’d expect and so much more.

The YMCA offers many programs that positively impact all of our community.
