Local & Global Presence

Rooted in more than 120 countries, YMCAs are autonomous yet united in a shared commitment to support youth and strengthen communities. As members of a global network, YMCAs work together to provide young people and their communities with access to the essentials needed to grow and thrive.

YMCAs: A Local and Global Presence

YMCAs in Canada have a strong tradition of supporting overseas development projects, facilitating international exchanges end engaging the Canadian public in development issues.

This is what we do at the YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka through both public engagement and out partnership with the YMCA of Sierra Leone. We are working hard at building strong relationships, at empowering youth around the world and at installing the belief that human development is a right and that every person deserves opportunities to grow in spirit, mind and body.
