Introducing YMCA World E-News

Date: 14 February 2013

The WAY has been building its digital communication platform for several years.  What began with e-mail and a website now includes a blog and social media spaces such as Facebook and Twitter.  At the end of last year, we suspended publication of our print magazine to take a more integrated and interactive approach to communication as the next step in this process.

Today, we’re unveiling a new section to our website where you can find an update on our work every Wednesday.  Once a month, we’ll also send you – our colleagues and subscribers – an e-mail like this one that provides summaries and links to the stories posted over the past four weeks.  For those who have limited internet access, we’ll post a downloadable, print version on our website.

You will also be able access and share this information via social media and your own websites or blogs – and we certainly hope you do!  Please help us create a chain of well-informed YMCA friends and supporters that encircles the entire globe.

So, what do you think?  Are we moving in the right direction?  What would you like to hear more about in the months ahead?

We would love to know your thoughts! Write us at

Now that we’re connected in so many ways, let’s keep the conversation going!
