About Us

Nearly 150 years serving our community! The YMCA has been part of the Nelson & Tasman community for a long time with our core values of:

                  Responsibility,   Respect,   Caring  and  Honesty

Our vision is to "build strong kids, strong families and strong communities" so we have a range of programmes and services that are available to all members of the community. We want to help build a better place to live by supporting people in our community.


Currently we offer:

A range of NZQA recognised education and training programmes

OSCAR  after-school care and holiday programmes

Early Childhood Education at Ykids

Youth leadership and development programmes

Our offices are in Victory Square, Nelson at 156 Toi Toi Street where we also base our education and youth programmes. Ykids is at 183 St Vincent Street.
