At the Dunbar Y Family & Community Center, located at 33 Oak Street in Springfield, families enjoy everything from martial arts, fitness sessions and dance classes, to after-school care, summer camp, senior health initiatives and mentoring opportunities for both youth and adults. We have something for everyone!
WHY THE Y?
Our community has needs, and the Y remains a central means to meeting them. We’ve always known that positive change only comes about when we invest in our kids, our health and our neighbors. And that’s why we’re here. We have three areas of focus:
Youth Development, because young people need caring adults to provide support, guidance and encouragement as they grow.
Healthy Living, because wellness in spirit, mind and body strengthens our very being, and enhances our interactions with others.
Social Responsibility, because we truly are in this together, and together we can harness our individual strengths and bring about positive change around us.
Since 1852, thousands of people have walked through the doors of our Family Centers. In 14 cities and towns, our members and participants are impacted by our core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. Every day we are reminded that the work we do is not just a luxury it is a necessity. Our amazing team of more than 500 staff members and volunteers consider it an honor and privilege to be part of this incredible social movement.
The value of a Y membership is well worth the price and the benefits to you and your community are limitless.
