Social Responsibility

The New Canaan YMCA has been listening to and responding to our community’s needs since 1954.  Through programs, facilities, and support, we work to make our community healthier, stronger, and more connected.  Additionally, we also provide our members with the opportunity to give back and make a difference themselves.  Whether through our volunteer program, becoming involved with one of our world service partnerships, or through our Annual Support Campaign, we work to empower our members to be able to join the Y’s cause of making our community stronger.


World Service Initiatives

In an effort to fulfill our mission of Social Responsibility, our Y provides support not only to our own community, but internationally as well, along with giving our members the opportunity to give back and get involved themselves.  Learn More.


Volunteers are vital to our YMCA, and by opening up your heart and extending your hand to our Y community, you will be changing the lives of so many. Learn more.
