WHERE EVERYONE BELONGS.
The Mystic Valley YMCA was founded in 1881. Governed by a 16 member Board of Directors, the Mystic Valley YMCA employs 150 staff and 60 volunteers and provides services to over 10,000 individuals each year. Operating from our facility in downtown Malden with our community outreach sites in Malden, Everett and Medford, the YMCA serves residents of all ages. We recently changed our name to better reflect the communities we serve
We are for: Youth Development, Healthy Living and Social Responsibility. The Y is a non-profit organization serving Malden, Medford and Everett.
Our mission drives us to help mold the kind of people who care about others, who are firm in their own sense of worth, whose outlook is community-wide and world-wide, who control the events of their own lives and who give leadership to others. The Mystic Valley YMCA is committed to providing vital community services for our community's most vulnerable citizens.
The Mystic Valley YMCA, as a charitable community based organization with a commitment to service, will utilize its staff, volunteers and facilities to strengthen individuals, families and our community by providing quality social, recreational and educational experiences while promoting honesty, respect, caring and responsibility to all members of our community.
