What are the Three Pillars of a Vibrant YMCA?

We believe that for an organisation to be strong and relevant, it has to have a clear Vision, its work has to be relevant to young people and communities, and the organisation has to have a viable and sustainable foundation.


Thus, Mission Clarity, Social Relevance and Institutional Viability have been defined as the three pillars for Movement Strengthening.


YMCAs around the world are invited to reflect on their own organisation by using these three pillars as a guideline.
