South Mountain YMCA


Teen Programs

In 1970, the South Mountain YMCA was created to fulfill a need in the Maplewood/South Orange communities for teen programming. Our organization is committed to serving this population with programs designed by our youth, for our youth. We believe that lasting personal and social change happens when we invest in our kids, our health and our neighbors.
