About Us

The MetroWest YMCA is a cause driven charitable organization that is for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.

  • Youth Development, because young people need caring adults to provide support, guidance and encouragement as they grow.

  • Healthy Living, because wellness in spirit, mind and body strengthens our very being and enhances our interactions with others.

  • Social Responsibility, because we truly are in this together and together we can harness our individual strengths and bring about positive change around us.

For over 50 years the MetroWest YMCA, with branches in Framingham and Hopkinton, has helped members improve their health and well-being while building a stronger sense of community.


MetroWest YMCA Mission Statement

The MetroWest YMCA is dedicated to providing programs and services that build healthy spirit, mind, and body for all.



Great things happen in and out of 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.
