“2020 brought massive disruption to the YMCA Movement and to millions of young people. But while some of our programmes and facilities may have closed for a period, the YMCA itself is never closed. Our collective thanks are due to the host of staff and volunteers, many of them young people, who stood and delivered.

We responded with Resilience, with Recovery, with Reimagination. With flexibility – pivoting and adapting where we had to. And with total solidarity: all over the world – at the local, national, regional and global levels – YMCAs supported each other to keep jobs open, rents paid, and services running.”
