Diversity & Inclusion
Our Commitment to Inclusion
The Y is made up of people of all ages and from every walk of life working side by side to strengthen communities. Together we work to ensure that everyone, regardless of ability, age, cultural background, ethnicity, faith, gender, gender identity, ideology, income, national origin, race or sexual orientation, has the opportunity to reach their full potential with dignity. Our core values are caring, honesty, respect and responsibility—they guide everything we do.
The Northern Middlesex YMCA does not discriminate on the basis of gender identity, including the use of bathrooms and locker rooms. YMCA patrons are permitted to use the bathroom and locker room of their gender identity. If any patron would prefer more privacy, that patron may use our co-ed locker room and/or our individual bathrooms located in the Lobby or Family center. The YMCA is committed to adapting our policies as we continue to evolve and create a more inclusive environment for all.
