Attride to lead Dorchester YMCA

Anthony Attride

Anthony Attride will be the new executive director for the Dorchester YMCA on Washington Street. Attride, who lives in Sudbury, will relocate back to Boston from Richmond, CA, where he has been serving as associate director of the East Bay YMCA.

It's a homecoming for Attride, who worked as the operations director at the Dorchester Y earlier in his eight-year career.

"I am so excited to return to Dorchester YMCA, to serve a community that I hold near and dear to my heart," says Attride, who holds a bachelor's degree in communications from Emerson College. "There have been some amazing and impactful things happening here, and I hope to enhance the Y's current partnerships and community impact or the people of Dorchester."
