For over 100 years, the YMCA of Central New Mexico has supported our local communities, focusing on diversity in people, cultures and religions. Working with our neighbors, we empower people and communities in Central New Mexico by:
- Nurturing the potential of children and teens
- Promoting healthy living
- Fostering a sense of social responsibility
New Mexico’s Largest Child Care Provider
Nationally, the Y is the country’s largest child care providers. Locally, we are honored to be the state’s largest child care provider, with over 20 early learning, pre-school and afterschool sites.
Albuquerque’s Largest Youth Sports Program
Built on the Y philosophy that every child will play every game, the YMCA has the largest youth sports program in Albuquerque. And there will not be any benchwarmers in our sports leagues!
Building Confidence At Camp
During the summer, we run a resident camp for children seven years or older. During their one-week stays, children grow from being fearful of their first time away from home to secure in who they are as individuals. In fact, most of our campers come back as junior and full-time counselors!
