YMCA Auckland

A not for profit organisation with our own causes

YMCA Auckland is a not for profit organisation, committed to strengthening families and youth development.

We’re part of a global family, but proud to be 100% New Zealand owned and operated, and are out there, managing over 20 facilities from Whangaparaoa in North Auckland to Hamilton in the Waikato. Our network comprises of centres which are owned and operated by YMCA, and a number that are managed through partnerships with central government agencies such as Ministry of Education and local government agencies such as Auckland Council.

Rest assured, though; we're from around here too. We reinvest into local communities through our three philanthropic programmes, Raise Up, Family Camp and Fee Assistance.

Our facilities are a place for families. From babies to grandparents and everyone in between we offer a wide range of services with something for everyone in the family.

We’re over 150 years old, and our rich history mirrors the history of New Zealand. Dedicated work over many years has laid the foundation to continue our work reinvesting in local communities, now and for many years to come.

Both YMCA facilities and programmes are regularly recognised through industry awards. We're also a pretty big player as well - nationally YMCA is the largest provider of Out of School Care for school-aged children, the largest provider of residential camping facilities and we run some of the largest sports leagues.
