The Valley YMCA has been a vital part of the Valley community since 1866 – serving the residents of Ansonia, Derby, Oxford, Seymour, and Shelton. At the Valley YMCA, we build strong kids, strong families, and strong communities.

The Valley Y has a wide variety of programs for the youth in our community. The Y is a leading nonprofit committed to nurturing the potential of youth – serving infants through teens – in a safe environment. Our experienced and caring staff and volunteers model the positive core Y values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility that help build character.

Give For A Better Us.

We’ve gone through a lot together over the last two years, but the YMCA’s mission has remained the same—to be here for our community when needed most. We may not know what the future holds, but we do know that we are stronger together.

The Y needs your help to continue offering critically important services for our community.

Together, we can provide food for those who are hungry, child care for parents who work, a safe space for kids after school, and outreach to clients and seniors who are feeling isolated.

Your gift to the Y is a gift to your community.

Forever Learning

AFTER SCHOOL

We strive to meet the needs of our families while providing quality experiences for the children in our programs. Where and how children spend their time is vital to their growth and success in life.

FOR YOUTH DEVELOPMENT 

We help kids reach their potential and thrive in a safe, trustworthy setting. We offer a curriculum that aligns with the school day and supports growth in literacy, science, math, science, engineering, and technology (STEM) while infusing the arts, physical activity, and fun. We teach kids confidence, encourage self-expression and enrich social development. Providing our youth with the support, encouragement and positive role models that they need, will not only increase their ability to succeed in school but in life. For families, we offer peace of mind knowing that your child is in a safe and educational program building new relationships and achieving more.

FOR HEALTHY LIVING

Our core values are woven throughout our child care program to create a warm, nurturing, home away from home. Your child’s growth, development, and education are important to us, as we do our best to ensure their future is bright.
