Welcome to the YMCA of Central New York!

Welcome to the YMCA of Central New York!

It’s been an honor for me to step into my role as President and CEO. I’ve spent a great deal of time meeting and engaging with leaders at all levels in our community and getting to know our members and supporters since joining the organization in November of 2017.

We’re working diligently to tell the story of our Y, letting people know that we are a charitable organization – so much more than a swim and gym. We’re one of the largest charities in Central New York!

  • Our organization serves more than 60,000 members and participants across 7 branches and over 40 satellite locations.  
  • We’re ranked in the top 10% of YMCAs in the country (number 73 of 865 associations) and we’re growing.
  • We employ more than 1500 employees – from full-time careers, to giving teens their first summer job.

We’re an organization called to serve – an organization of purpose. Our branches and programs are the tools we use to serve people. We provide a sense of community and comprehensive offerings, from arts and education to chronic disease prevention, for a wide range of people. Our inclusive policies and financial assistance ensures everyone can belong and we have the capacity to respond.

Our Y is continuously evolving – working side-by-side with our members, donors, and leaders to understand the ways our community needs are changing and how to best facilitate positive outcomes. We’re excited about the opportunities we have to serve our region and ensure that all members of our Central New York community thrive and reach their full potential.  

Thank you for your continuing support of the YMCA,  

Mike Brown
President and CEO
