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.
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.
