At the Y, we're for youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. We believe everyone deserves access to opportunities that help them realize their full potential, regardless of ability to pay. That's why it's so important for the Y to raise contributions for those who need financial assistance.

All proceeds go directly towards our financial assistance program to ensure that we stay true to our promise to turn no one away because of an inability to pay.

When you give to a YMCA of Southern Maine branch, your gift will help young people achieve their potential, empower people of all ages to lead healthier lives, and strengthen the bonds of community in Southern Maine. 

Now, when you think of the Y, you'll know it's more than just a gym... it's a cause.  A cause, that, with your generous support, will continue to strengthen the community in which you live.




Swim Test Policy

We implemented a new "Test, Mark, and Protect" swim policy with the goal of making our facility the safest it can be for you and your family on January 6th, 2014.  It includes our current policies on the age of individuals and youth facility usage.
