Jose Varghese

Dear Friends,

I am very pleased to share with you all the announcement from my good friend Henry J. Grindheim, the International President of Y’s Men International of the appointment of Jose Varghese as the next International Secretary General.

This is a great example of the partnership between YMCAs and Ys Men that such an experienced and highly regarded YMCA leader is awarded this role.

Jose has been an outstanding member of the YMCA leadership teams in local, national and area levels and the last 8 years he has been a very valuable and resourceful member of my staff team at the World Alliance of YMCAs. So far my dear friend Jose has served this movement for more than 25 years.

I wholeheartedly congratulate him and wish him and the Ys Men God’s rich blessings and great success in the future.

Warm regards

Johan Vilhelm Eltvik, Secretary General – World YMCAs
