A key strategy of the Boothbay Region YMCA’s strategic plan is to leverage the power of collaboration to build greater capacity and strengthen programs and services.
Our Y was intentionally built directly across the street from the school. We collaborate with the schools on programming and outreach initiatives including Free 2nd Grade Water Safety, Summer Food Program, and the High School Membership Initiative.
Boothbay Region TV & Media Center
We house the Boothbay Region Community Television within our building at no cost to them and together we work to support our community.
We collaborate extensively on programming and meeting transportation needs with our partner Y in Damariscotta. Our signature collaborative programs include Summer Camps and the YMCA’s Evidence-Based Health Initiative programs. We build greater capacity through shared staff in the business office, and summer camp staff.
The Y provides support to the CRC “Set for Success” back-to-school event, where every child in the community is provided school supplies to start off the new year.
Healthy Lincoln County serves as the county-wide sponsor for the Summer Food Service Program that supports our summer camps.
LincolnHealth is a key partner for the YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program.
We work closely with the 15 other YMCA Associations in Maine to build statewide capacity around advocacy and to strengthen shared programming such as LIVESTRONG at the YMCA.
We are part of an interconnected global network with the resources and innovative solutions to help people reach their potential and make our communities stronger. There are YMCAs in more than 120 countries, each serving the unique needs of their community.
We also partner with the following organizations to enhance programming and meet community needs:
