YMCA OF NEWARK AND VICINITY

About Us

STRENGTHENING

OUR

COMMUNITY

Since 1881, the Newark YMCA has served the needs of the community through an array of programs and services. Our mission is to provide opportunities for individual growth, youth and family development and overall enhancement of the quality of life in our community through programs that include health, housing, recreation, education and social direction. We accomplish our mission through our areas of focus:

YOUTH DEVELOPMENT:

We have long had a firm commitment to strengthening the character and improving the education of youth. Our youth programs have grown dramatically, while holding fast to our core values: caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. We work tirelessly to close the achievement gap through after school enrichment, camp programs and family outreach. Our Camp Linwood in Susses County offers hundreds of children and families the chance to experience the thrill and challenge of the natural world.

HEALTHY LIVING: 

Last year, almost 1,200 members enjoyed the health and wellness benefits available at our facility: they swam laps in our heated pool, played basketball on our full court gym or spent their lunch hour playing racquetball,  participated in fitness classes, used our treadmills and other cardio machines, lifted weights or enjoyed the sauna and steam rooms. 

SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY:

For more than 100 years,  the Y has found a variety of ways to meet the needs of the Newark community. The Newark YMCA offers safe, affordable housing and shelter to those who needed it through our housing programs, emergency shelter, crisis services for teens and much more.
