The inaugural International RDE Summit in Toledo, Ohio, USA has concluded.
Building Today for a Better Tomorrow
YMI is oriented to serving the worldwide YMCA and the communities in which
it is present throughout the world.
In 2019/20, we are working under the banner of the International President’s theme, “Building Today for a Better Tomorrow”.
Support Across Borders
We are playing a key role in sustainable development through the “Time of Fast” Global Project Fund and in our partnership with the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies to fight malaria in endemic countries.
Jacob Kristensen from Denmark has been elected International President Elect for 2019/20.
Y's Men International has joined the World YMCA to support the Global Fund to Step Up The Fight against malaria.
About 90% of local club support stays in the local community – either through support to the local YMCA or through direct community support (most often a combination of the two). Annually, such support is estimated at close to US$ 4 million – plus numerous hours of volunteer service work.
