A Message from our Interim CEO, Gretchen Insole
Mine truly is a Y story that spans my entire life…While growing up, my brothers and I swam on the Tiger Sharks swim team, our dad volunteered at swim meets, and my mom worked here.
I began with teaching swim lessons, became the aquatics coordinator, later the Membership Director, followed by Associate Executive Director, and effective July 23, your Interim CEO.
My vision and hope for the Ocean County YMCA is to make our community stronger, where everyone feels valued. We want to bring people together, inviting them to share their diverse perspectives and discover their shared passions. Let us provide a place for children to play, learn, grow and thrive. Where adults achieve health, gain confidence, make connections, and feel secure at every stage of life.
I want to thank existing members for staying with us and welcome new members to the Y family. For those families not quite ready to return, we will be here waiting for you. Stop by, take a tour. You belong here..
