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.

World Service Acts at the Northern York County Branch's Childcare Center

Helping our community!

Toys for Tots donations will be collected by the YMCA of Southern Maine's NYC Childcare Center from November 9-20 at a designated drop off area in the NYC Branch's lobby. Y staff members will take the new, unopened, not wrapped toys to our local Toys for Tots location and Toys for Tots will  distribute the donations to families in our community.

Please consider donating a new, unopened, not wrapped toy November 9-20 at the Northern York County Branch.

Thank you and happy holidays!



December 1, 2015 is Giving Tuesday! Annually, Giving Tuesday presents us all with an opportunity to give back to our communities, whether it be through donation of goods, funds, or our time. We all know that Southern Maine is a special place, but we also know that there is potential for the community to grow stronger. This #GivingTuesday, when you donate to the YMCA of Southern Maine you’ll help us build a better, stronger community – a better, stronger us. Visit us here to donate. Thank you for your generous support!

Support our Annual Campaign in 2015!




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.
