Testimonials

Since its founding in 1886, The Summit Area YMCA has positively impacted the lives of many members in our community and beyond. From helping cancer recovery patients to providing financial assistance to those in need, to motivating you to reach your wellness goals, to making safe spaces for children with diverse abilities—we care about our neighbors and work to provide every individual opportunities to learn, grow and thrive. These are their stories.
When we say that the Summit Area YMCA welcomes everyone, we mean it. As the first Diversity, Inclusion & Global Innovation Network of New Jersey, we strive to continuously welcome and engage all people from all diverse groups of the community through welcoming, inclusive practices, program innovation, services and events to help impact lasting, meaningful change. We believe in the strength of community and supporting our neighbors for a better tomorrow, for a better us.
