The Boothbay Region YMCA aims to strengthen our community by connecting us to each other and being available to all. Our YMCA aims to support individuals and families with programs that build character and promote lifelong wellbeing.
Our organizational objectives, defined through our 2014 real-time strategic planning process, are as follows:

1. We will address the financial challenges of building endowment, funding capital projects, and meeting operational needs to ensure long term viability of our YMCA.

2. We will deliver programs and services that strengthen our community by promoting youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.

3. We will elevate our impact and expand our impact as a vita and leading cause-driven charity in our community.

Our strategies are the following: We will leverage the power of collaboration to build greater capacity and strengthen programs and services. We will create a healthy mix of earned revenue, grants and charity dollars to assure sustainability and ensure that the Y is accessible to all. We will ensure access, inclusion and engagement to promote our mission. We will strive to engage 100% of the youth in our community to nurture their potential, promote healthy living, and foster a sense of social responsibility. We will develop, support, and retain cause-driven staff and volunteers to provide enduring leadership for all programs. We will strive to engage the seniors in our community to nurture their potential, promote healthy living, and foster a sense of social responsibility. We will effectively leverage our brand to better reflect our wide array of programs and services. We will expand our impact by extending our reach to greater Lincoln County, ME.

The Boothbay Region YMCA has the capacity to achieve our organization objectives and strategies. Our facilities, including YMCA Camp Knickerbocker provide visibility and are centrally located. Our close proximity to the schools allows us to engage youth in the out of school time. We provide opportunities for over 5,000 people of all ages to interact and learn together in our mission-driven programs each year. We firmly believe that the Y is for all people, and thus our policies and practices ensure affordability and promote accessibility, diversity and inclusion.

Led by a team of committed, cause-driven volunteers and highly qualified professional staff, the Boothbay Region YMCA is here for good. We catalyze and foster dozens of collaborations that both extend the YMCA's reach and impact while strengthening the community.

We utilize the SEER surveys, designed for YMCAs to evaluate operations and measure impact in membership and programs. Each survey provides us with actionable data to highlight strengths and implement plans to further enhance our programs and services. In addition, we regularly revisit the real-time strategic plan to chart progress and adjust strategies as necessary. We closely track financial, fundraising, membership and program metrics to ensure operational sustainability and growth.

The Boothbay Region YMCA serves 5,000 people annually, from infants in our Child Enrichment Center to our Senior Star members. In 2015, we successfully partnered with the Central Lincoln County YMCA to provide joint summer camp programming at our Camp Knickerbocker. This was very successful, mutually beneficial to both YMCAs and allowed us to participate in the Summer Food Service Program to provide free breakfasts and lunches to all campers. Through year-round services, we serve the majority of our community's youth; we can continue to grow in this area as we strive towards 100%. Our annual fundraising and camp scholarship drives continue to provide critical resources to provide financial assistance and free or subsidized programs for all members of our community.
