A message from Regional YMCA President/CEO Marie Miszewski

“The mission of our Y to build healthy spirits, minds, and bodies has been and remains constant and unwavering.”

We will continue to support and nurture children and adults—as individuals, as families, and as our neighbors – by providing opportunities for all to learn, grow and thrive. Our hundreds of volunteers will still work tirelessly to improve the overall health and well-being of our community. There is no other nonprofit quite like the Y. That’s because in 10,000 neighborhoods across the nation, we have a presence and a partnership to not just promise, but deliver, lasting personal and social change. As a volunteer led organization that is their commitment to making a difference, by giving back and providing support to our neighbors.”

The Y is a volunteer founded and volunteer led nonprofit organization. The Regional YMCA of Western Connecticut is fortunate to have passionate, cause-driven leaders serve our community as members of our Board of Directors and Board of Trustees. With gratitude we list them here.
