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.

What’s Your Reason To Give?

There are so many reasons to give this holiday season. What’s yours?

Every day at the Y we are inspired by the child learning to swim, the woman running her first mile, the baby taking his first steps, and the senior staying active and social…well into her 90’s. We are heartened by the purpose and potential we see in every member, volunteer, and person that walks through our doors.

We are also inspired by – and grateful – for you. Your support makes all of this is possible.

During this holiday season, we need your help to ensure we can continue transforming lives. Please give today, and together we can make our community a better place for all.

Your gift ensures that as community needs change and evolve, the Y is able to respond.

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.
