Emphasis Month for Leadership Training & Organisational Development (LTOD) & Public Relations (PR)
Y’s Men with the World
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 Kim Sang-chae:
“Y’s Men with the World”.
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.
An international centennial celebration event will be hosted in Taipei, Taiwan from 15 to 17 November 2022.
In 2022, Y’s Men International will mark its 100th anniversary. Let it be a year of celebration, of sharing stories of our work, of introducing the world to our movement of global fellowship and service.
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.
