Central Community Branch


About Us

About Us

The Central Community Branch of the YMCA of Central Massachusetts is conveniently located at 766 Main Street in the heart of the city. Built in 1920 this YMCA is one of the best-kept secrets in Worcester. We recently completed a multi-million dollar renovation to our facility and invite you to stop by for a tour or a visit.

Our Central Branch staff and membership reflect the rich diversity of our city. We are a community of members that are like friends and family to each other. The Central Branch is well known for being a safe and positive place for teens, providing some of the best opportunities available for this tough-to reach age group. If you have not been by to visit Central recently you do not know what you are missing.
