Founded in 1851 as America’s first Y, the YMCA of Greater Boston has strengthened the Greater Boston community through a focus on youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. The flagship branch on Huntington Avenue was completed in 1912. Today the YMCA of Greater Boston ranks as one of the largest urban Ys in the nation, staying true to its roots as a values-driven, volunteer-led, human service organization strengthening children, families, and communities.
