The Young Men’s Christian Association (YMCA) is an international, voluntary, Christian ecumenical, youth movement. Founded in 1844, it seeks to unite young people, men, women and children, irrespective of race or religion, in the task of building community characterised by justice, love and peace, based on the teachings of Jesus Christ.
The Asia and Pacific Alliance of YMCAs, an integral part of the World Alliance of YMCAs, is a Federation of 24 YMCA Councils of YMCA Movements in Asia and Pacific countries and territories. Established as a regional body in 1949, the Alliance unites more than 3,000 local YMCA units with more than 6 million members and many more programme participants.
The ongoing intensive process of globalisation, impacting on our societies, our culture and identities, is a major concern of the Asia and Pacific Alliance of YMCAs. Our programme thrust therefore, expresses our commitment to the Mission of the YMCA, and to proactively meet the challenges we are confronted with in our respective societies, today.
