2019 World Challenge
8 June 2019
To celebrate YMCA’s 175 th anniversary in 2019, World YMCA is challenging people across the globe to volunteer 175 minutes of their time on 8 June to better their community.
YMCAs all over the world are preparing events for people in their community to volunteer their time as we pay homage to the millions of volunteers who have supported our movement over the last 175 years. To help promote your event, be sure to look through our suite of materials.
If you’re planning on joining in the World Challenge be sure to share your experiences on social media under #YMCAChallenge #YMCA175 and log your progress with your local or national YMCA.
Together we aim to achieve a grand total of 1.75 million minutes volunteered so come visit your local YMCA and celebrate our birthday by helping us build a stronger community for all! World YMCA will showcase some of your best volunteer activities at the YMCA175 youth event taking place in London from 4-8 August. Registration for the event is closing soon so if you’ve not already done so, register today!
