Worcester, Massachusetts is home to thousands of immigrants that have struggled to make a better life for themselves in the United States. This study is aimed at identifying ways the YMCA in downtown Worcester can reach out to these newcomers. Using surveys, interviews, and engaging with the Y and Worcester communities, this study concludes that the YMCA should offer soccer as a regular program as well as other global sports. Additionally the Y could export many of their services directly to these new residents in places where they gather.
