About Our Y

Who We Are

At the Y, we focus on nurturing the potential of every child and teen, improving our community’s health and well-being and giving back to our neighbors.  Everyone is welcome at the Y, regardless of age, ability, income, or background.  During these difficult times when tensions are high, the Y is dedicated to diversity, equity and inclusion.  Our core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility guide everything we do.

Our programs and facilities continuously strive to meet or exceed CDC and Health Department guidelines. All Westfield Area YMCA facilities have Global Plasma Solutions Needlepoint Bi-Polar Ionization Air Quality Systems with proven effectiveness inactivating the COVID-19 virus: 10 minutes, 84.2%; 15 minutes, 92.6%; 30 minutes, 99.4%. Y staff will continue cleaning high-touch areas and we ask that you remain vigilant about hand washing and wiping down equipment before and after you use it.
