CHARITY BEGINS HERE

Since the late 1800s, our Y community has been involved in international work. We are part of the international YMCA network—a powerful alliance dedicated to strengthening our global community of 46 million members in 119 countries. Because of this global reach, we are able to respond to trends in migration, health, economic livelihood and education that are reshaping our communities.

INTERNATIONAL PARTNERS

Partnerships are developed based on the mutual interests of both local and international Ys. Our current International Partner Ys are: South Africa, Ukraine, Chile, Colombia, Belize and Brazil.

TEEN IMMERSION TRIPS

Local teens have the chance to travel to a region served by an International Partner for youth exchange, service learning and cross-cultural education.

DIVERSITY & INCLUSION INITIATIVES

The Y aspires to be the center of collaboration within our communities by inspiring and promoting diversity, inclusion and global efforts for ALL. Click here to learn more about the Y's DIG efforts.
