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


18th June 2020

YMCA Europe is pleased to announce the start of a new international project under its aegis - The “Generation Next”!

Funded by our long-standing partner “Bread for the World” and to be piloted first in the Region of South Caucasus from July 1st, 2020 to June 30th, 2023 - the project aim is to offer educational scholarship opportunities to socially deprived students and to provide their access to extra-curricular activities hosted by YMCA Resource Centers (camps) established thanks to YMCA Europe Roots for Reconciliation project, and thus promoting the YMCAs sustainability and relevance in the region. 

This means the entry into the new key engagement area for YMCA Europe, as the development of soft life skills among youth becomes critically important within modern, very competitive society and our organization has always strived to be adequate and responsive to the emerging needs of major beneficiaries - the young people.

We are excited about this new challenge and are confident that it will become yet another signature program of YMCA Europe!

All these could only become possible due to tremendous efforts of our Executive Secretary, Vardan Hambardumyan - who was instrumental at each stage of the process. 

Thank you, Vardan and team! Good Luck, Generation Next!
