Princeton YMCA members share in the common vision that we are part of a worldwide fellowship working together to develop the mind, strengthen the body, and encourage the spirit in order to better the human condition. The YMCA benefits the communities and the neighborhoods that it works in. Our members, volunteers and staff belong to a caring, dedicated family that is a leader of personal community growth. Based in rich history and traditions, the YMCA, with a focus on youth, is in the vanguard of helping shape and positively influence present and future generations.

The Princeton YMCA values the following attributes in personal character and ethical behavior and believes they are essential to attaining our mission:



Caring is symbolized by the color red for the heart; we seek to teach love and tolerance for fellow human beings.



Honesty is blue for “true blue” – the value of honor and truthfulness in our lives.



Respect is yellow for the “golden rule” – treating others as we ourselves wish to be treated.



Responsibility is symbolized by the color green for nature and our responsibility for the world around us and ourselves.
