What We Do

An International Movement rooted in more than 12000 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.

To respond to the world’s challenges, the movement is also organized in Area Organizations [Asia and Pacific, Latin America and Caribbean, Europe and Africa] for strategic cooperation, under a Governance Agreement.
