YMCA HAWKES BAY
The YMCA’s focus on building strong kids, strong families and strong communities continues to make a difference in Hawke’s Bay and the ‘out there, around here’ mantra is certainly at the heart of our desire to get the Y even closer to current and new customers, our communities and strategic partners.
We’re about people and helping them to achieve their goals – whatever they maybe. Our aim is to strengthen communities through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. We do that through our Bay wide relevant programmes and services, having a ton of fun along the way.
The YMCA is the Bay’s, and nations, largest provider of Oscar Before and After School Care and fun, interactive Holiday Programmes from 5 – upto 14 years. The Latham Street Childcare Centre nurtures 35 pre-schoolers in a safe, fun, encouraging environment.
Our Hastings and Napier Youth programmes aim to make a positive difference and feature weekly programmes plus the sensational summer and autumn Breakaway projects.
Adult Education is a big part of what we do at the Y with programmes delivering Numeracy and Literacy, NCEA unit standards, bridging gaps to employment including assisting young mum’s and soon dad’s to enter meaningful work situations.
Volunteers play a huge part in the daily life of the Y and in return we deliver pastoral and pathway programmes to career and service opportunities to name just two such as the Duke of Edinburgh Awards.
You are always welcome here at the Y - the coffee pot’s on, smiles are endearing and your help, input, support and ideas gratefully received so please don’t be a stranger.
