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.

The New Year often brings feelings of positive improvement and change – a new year, a time to focus on living a better life and providing support for those around us. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a pioneer in the world of positive improvement and change, we celebrate him and his work, MLK Day, Monday January 18. For over 20 years, MLK Day has been a time that individuals were encouraged to volunteer their time to improve their communities.
Engage along side us to help our community. Together we can make a difference.
Donate! Our goal is to collect over 180 pounds of non-perishable food, household staples and other items at each Y. That’s a total of 1,800 pounds! Every canned good and toilet paper roll counts. Collection points are:
Volunteer! Get involved and work beside us with other community supporters. Sign up to volunteer for a safe, socially distanced volunteer shift at one of many events. We hope to have a YMCA presence at each! Volunteer groups welcome!
Support! Make an on-line donation to support this vital work so that the Central Connecticut Coast YMCA can help serve those in our community who needs us most. Our goal is to raise at least $3,500 during our Days of Service. Every dollar counts!
If you’re hoping for a happier and healthier New Year – let the Y help you! There are plenty of ways to smile while engaging in Y activities – in person or virtual, have your child participate in a distance learning program or small group class, learn a new activity or meet a new friend.

At the Y, we’re dedicated to strengthening the community by giving back and supporting our neighbors. That’s why we invite you to participate in Togetherhood™, a program that gives Y members the opportunity to select, plan and lead meaningful community service projects that benefit people and organizations right here in our neighborhood!
Togetherhood™ invites members to participate in the Y’s cause to strengthen the community. Collecting school supplies, donating blood, or running a park clean up are just some of the countless ways Y members and their friends and families can come together in service to their community.
