The YMCA Change Agent programme is a global leadership development programme to empower young leaders as change makers in their own communities.
YMCA Change Agents are young volunteers and/or staff from YMCAs across the world who strengthen the YMCA so the YMCA can serve more young people. They participate in innovative and life changing experiences including online and face-to-face trainings, mentoring and local project development for expansion of youth services. They gain skills to help transform their YMCA and community and they build connections to an international network of other young leaders.
Since 2014, 750 Change Agents have graduated and are leading change in 67 countries around the world. Change Agents are active and their projects are changing lives.
