How Do We Support Each Other?

As we have learned before, Movement Strengthening is about learning from each other and sharing what each of us knows best.

Under GOP, the YMCA family has developed different strategies for helping YMCAs that need assistance. Most of the support is provided through the expertise of international partner groups together with local and national YMCA leaders, also referred to as « Country Focus Groups, or Area Focus Groups ». However, sometimes, a short intervention to provide technical support by an international partner or by a neighbouring YMCA may be enough to help a YMCA get back on its feet again.

Knowledge sharing between YMCAs through exchange of good practices and lessons learnt is another important strategy to strengthen national YMCAs and the YMCA Movement in general.
