Central YMCA

Central YMCA


Established in London in 1844, Central YMCA is the founding Association of what quickly became a worldwide youth movement, now active in some 120 countries with 60 million members across the globe. As a global movement, we continue to reflect our founder’s vision to create a safe space, where people can learn, grow and live well without judgement. Our ambition is for every individual to thrive in body, mind and spirit, through imaginative and healthy activity, creative learning programmes and supportive social opportunities. Through our five operations, three of which are national, YMCA Awards; YMCAfit; YMCA Training; YMCA Club and One KX, we enable the personal and professional development of young people and those in need, within our local communities in London and across England.
