Building Vibrant YMCAs

What is it about?


Vibrant YMCAs are strong and relevant Movements that respond to the needs of communities and youth in particular. For this reason, the global YMCA Movement has made Movement Strengthening the top strategic priority for the YMCA.


The YMCA is a very diverse organisation. As one of the oldest grassroots Movements in the world, within the YMCA you can find programmes and expertise on every social issue you can think of.


Despite this wealth and diversity, and the existence of many vibrant YMCAs, some Movements struggle to survive; some lack the necessary resources to sustain their YMCA, others suffer from a declining membership or lack a clear vision for their work.
