The Principles of Partnership between YMI and the World YMCA have been renewed.
Values, Extension & Leadership
YMI is oriented to serving the worldwide YMCA and the communities in which
it is present throughout the world.
This year we will be inspired by the theme of International President Jacob Kristensen:
“Values, Extension & Leadership”.
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.
The first-ever annual report of Y's Men International has been published.
The August IP e-News is now available in various languages.
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.
