Thank You For Helping To Light The Way

The Y is focused on building a brighter future for all. By tackling Greater Boston’s most critical issues, we hope to build a world where our next generations can thrive. Every time a child, individual or family interacts with the Y, our singular goal is to improve their future potential by connecting them to the services that will help them be the best version of themselves. That’s why we work to demand equity for all, build bright futures, end hunger, improve community health, and eliminate barriers to family economic stability.

When you join with the Y, you help us light the way for the next generation.

Thank you to our sponsors, donors and attendees. It was wonderful to see you all in person again.
