Why our community loves the Y

For over 150 years, the Mansfield Area Y has been at the core of our community for those seeking a healthy Spirit, Mind, and Body. Strengthening our community is our foundation, and we are devoted to providing everyone - regardless of age, income or background in our community with a safe, exciting and pleasant environment. We work side by side with our community every day to guarantee no one is lacking the services they need for a happy, healthy life and the opportunities and connections needed to reach their maximum potential. The  Y is committed to excellence, and we offer many exceptional, top-of-the-line programs for youth, families, adults, and seniors, all set in a hospitable and welcoming community atmosphere.

What we offer at the Y
The Y isn’t just a gym, it’s so much more. Your Mansfield Area Y is dedicated to:

  • nurturing the potential of youth through building confidence by offering academic enrichment in safe after-school programs, or foundational skills and values in our child care programs
  • improving the nation’s health and well-being through combating obesity and chronic disease by providing the support and resources people need to make positive change
  • giving back and supporting our neighbors by empowering people with the resources to improve their lives and connect and contribute to the community, such as with job training, housing, newcomer services,  and opportunities to advocate for social change
  • offering programs and services to children, adults, and families who need financial assistance

Who We Are
The Mansfield Area Y is a powerful association of men, women, and children of all ages and walks of life joined together by a shared commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living and fostering a sense of social responsibility. We are dedicated to bringing the Y's mission, values and cause to our local communities.

At the Y our philosophy stems from our belief that personal and social transformations that last can only come about when we all work together, investing in our community, health, and our kids. That’s why, at the Y, strengthening community is our cause. For 150 years, we’ve worked along beside our neighbors throughout our community to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.
