The fact that YMCA Scotland is just a small part of this huge global youth organisation means that there is a world of opportunity for our young people in learning beyond our shores. Many of our YMCAs will enjoy a range of exchange and learning opportunities in partnership with local YMCAs in other countries.
Mike Will MBE (Vice President and former Chair of YMCA Scotland) was elected to serve as President of YMCA Europe at the European YMCA General Assembly held in Madrid in May 2016.
In the past year young people from Scotland participated in International YMCA events in Thailand, Japan, Singapore, Germany, Switzerland, Spain, Ukraine, Denmark, USA and the Czech Republic and hosted a group from the Netherlands.
In April 2017 YMCA Scotland is delighted to be hosting the YMCA Europe General Assembly in Edinburgh.
