Every day, in almost every corner of the world, YMCA staff and volunteers like you work to serve diverse communities, helping people overcome barriers and access opportunities to reach their full potential! We are a part of a Global Movement of YMCAs in 119 countries that work every day to address critical social issues - often in some of the most challenging conditions imaginable.
An International Movement rooted in more than 12,000 communities around the world. The YMCA addresses issues affecting each community by developing programs and activities with special focus on young people in order to build a “human community of justice with love, peace and reconciliation for the fullness of life for all creation”.
The YMCA movement is organized as a federation of independent national associations linked through the World Alliance of YMCAs which is based in Geneva, Switzerland.
