„YMCA Europe is a working fellowship to strengthen movements where people grow in body, mind and spirit.“

JUNE 6TH. THE YMCA IS 172 YEARS … YOUNG!

6th June 2016

We wish you happy and inspiring celebrations of the YMCA birthday across Europe.

On June 6th 1844, George Williams founded in London the Young Men´s Christian Association. Today it has become one of the largest movements in Europe serving young people and keeping the genuine participation of young people.

At YMCA Europe´s Strategy 2016-2020, we identified objectives such us Creating Spaces, Movement Strengthening and Representation & Advocacy. Our vision is to continue developing the YMCA in Europe in contemporary times taking George William´s legacy into the future.

Happy birthday YMCA !!
