When you join the Y, you become part of a community.  We are so much more than a gym-we are invested in our members, committed to strengthening bodies, minds, and neighborhoods.  The Y's mission has been dedicated to building healthy, confident, and secure children, families, and communities.  We accomplish this every time an individual makes a healthy choice or a mentor inspires a child or we unite for the common good.  You see, we care about helping you transform your life inside and out.  At the Y, strengthening community is our cause.

Since 1867, the Mansfield YMCA has been honored to serve its community. As one of the longest-running community organizations, it is our distinct privilege to be part of a cause-driven association of men, women, and children committed to bringing about lasting personal and social change. With a focus on nurturing the potential of every child and teen, improving our community’s health and well-being, and providing opportunities to give back and support others, our Y enables youth, adults, families, and communities to be healthy, confident, connected, and secure.

Deeply rooted in our community, the Y is a valuable community asset that works to ensure that everyone — regardless of age, income or background — has the opportunity to learn, grow, and thrive. If you haven’t had the opportunity to come in and see what’s happening, we extend an invitation for you to visit us and discover what so many people already know:  there’s no place like the Y for building community and relationships! Every day our impact is felt when an individual makes a healthy choice, when a mentor inspires a child, and when a community comes together for the common good.

Please join us in our movement as we continue to focus on youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility.
