 Staff Spotlight


Araseli Mejia
Araseli's story is one of over 40 stories we are exhibiting at the Y during our 8th Annual Rye Y Story Project. 
I love working with kids because they always make you happy. They have smiles on their faces and give you love. They share their stories and their imagination. They're always happy to see you. Sometimes the kids cry at first but little by little they get used to being here. Then they just walk in because it feels like home. It's the best.  Read more

Updates
Update on 1037 Boston Post Road
We are continuing to work through what we hope are the final details to move forward with our goal to transform the former Mrs. Greens Supermarket in Rye into a state-of-the-art recreation and fitness center for all ages that will complement and enhance our existing facility.  Stay tuned for additional updates as we move through the next few weeks.

Health Update
We know that many people are concerned about COVID-19 (Coronavirus). We are closely monitoring all updates from the Westchester County and New York State Departments  of Health and the CDC and will follow their guidance regarding public health and safety.
 
The most important actions we can all take right now is to follow the regular flu-season precautions:
  • Stay home when you are sick
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Consider getting a flu shot if you have not already done so.
For additional information, visit the Westchester Dept. of Health webpage or the  CDC's webpage
