World YMCA/YWCA Week of Prayer 2018

For over a century, the YWCA and YMCA movements have issued a joint call to pray in the month of November as an important reminder of the spiritual vision that drives their efforts to create a better world for all people. The week presents an opportunity for the YWCA and YMCA movements to pray and act together on a shared issue with members around the world. Each year, the YWCA and the YMCA take turns to lead on the preparation of a booklet as a resource for prayer and a reflection guide with a selected theme inspired on the work and efforts done by both organisations.

For 2018, after a YMCA World Council full of energy and youth empowerment, the YMCA is leading on the development of the booklet under the theme:  “Youth Empowerment for Good”.

What is a “Playbook”?

In sports, a playbook is a team’s action plan for the game. It makes the strategy easy to understand so that everyone involved knows what is happening at all times.

The World YMCA Playbook is our collective action plan. It is an invitation to everyone in the YMCA to advance our vision of empowering youth worldwide.

Read it, share it, be a part of it!
