Our Mission


Southern District YMCA provides opportunities for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility in our southern New Hampshire community. We achieve this by putting Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all - regardless of age, gender, sexuality, race, ability, religion or income.


  • Embody the YMCA core values: caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.
  • Be community centered: listen and respond to community needs.
  • Bring people together.
  • Nurture potential: everyone should have the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.
  • Be local and think global: mobilize local communities to effect lasting, meaningful change.

Southern District YMCA is a cause-driven organization that is for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.
