Welcoming Week

 
 

On September 14 through September 23, 2018, the Summit Area YMCA will join in the nationwide movement with Y-USA and Welcoming America in Welcoming Week — a week of events that celebrate the contributions of immigrants and refugees, as well as inspire people to build inclusive communities that embrace immigrants and foster opportunity for all.

The Summit YMCA and The Berkeley Heights YMCA will open its doors to the community for various special activities as well as a chance to connect with neighbors in a nurturing environment that focuses on the mind, body and spirit. We welcome all, regardless of financial or physical circumstance and we strive every day to promote understanding, tolerance and compassion within our community.
