WELCOME TO THE<br />

MERRIMACK VALLEY YMCA<br />

Every day the Y’s impact is felt when an individual makes a healthy choice,<br />

when a mentor inspires a child and when a community comes together for a<br />

common good. As a 501(C) (3) volunteer-founded, volunteer-led organization<br />

the intent is to foster social connectedness, strengthen support networks, and<br />

encourage investment in our communities, which in turn serves to strengthen<br />

the foundations of our community. This is all done at no cost to the neighboring<br />

cities and towns thereby lessening the burdens of government.<br />

Membership dues support everyday operations. However, the Merrimack<br />

Valley YMCA endeavors to secure grants and conduct annual fundraising<br />

campaigns and events, in order to provide financial assistance, charitable<br />

services, and access to people of all income levels. The Merrimack Valley<br />

YMCA provides millions of dollars each year in essential services and financial<br />

assistance initiatives focused on youth development, healthy living and social<br />

responsibility aligned with the unique and diverse needs of the communities<br />

it engages. The Y’s activities have significantly enhanced public access to<br />

fitness, health, educational enrichment and numerous other services; especially<br />

among children, the disabled, the homeless, the needs associated with an aging<br />

community and other at-risk populations.<br />

The Y is, and always will be, dedicated to building healthy, confident, connected<br />

and secure children, adults, families and communities.<br />

Access/Membership Restrictions Policy<br />

The protection of members and guests who are participating in programs or<br />

are using YMCA facilities is of paramount concern to the staff of the Merrimack<br />

Valley YMCA. Therefore, we reserve the right to deny access or membership to<br />

any person who:<br />

• is a registered sexual offender.<br />

• has pled guilty to or been convicted of any crime involving sexual abuse.<br />

• has pled guilty to or been convicted of any crime against persons such as<br />

child, spousal, or parental abuse.<br />

• has pled guilty to or been convicted of any offense relating to the sale or<br />

• is clearly under the influence of intoxicating beverages or behavior<br />

modifying drugs.<br />

• has pled guilty to or been convicted of a violent crime.<br />

• engages in conduct that violates our code of conduct or YMCA values.<br />
