Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Ridgewood YMCA has been an active “hub” of the community, offering a variety of programs to assist in the social, emotional, and physical development of young people. Youth Development programming addresses all levels of competence, ranging from beginner lessons to advanced competition. As reflected in our mission, the goal of the Ridgewood YMCA has always been to promote a healthy lifestyle, and therefore, we have a comprehensive list of Healthy Living programs, including, but not limited to: adult aquatics, ballroom dance, aerobics, yoga, meditation, karate, kickboxing, Pilates, tennis, and Reiki. In addition to these classes, we offer private personal training sessions, nutrition information, adult team sports, and lifeguard training. Social Responsibility has always been at the core of our 110 year-service. The principles on which we were founded reflect a sense of service, community, and social responsibility. And our programs, collaborations, and partnerships - both locally and on a global scale - make it possible for the Ridgewood Y to have a wide-ranging impact on our community, throughout the tri-state area, and internationally.
