Our Worldwide Family – Local Impact, Global Reach

As well as our projects in South Yorkshire and the YMCA centres working hard right across the UK, we are also a global movement seeking to respond to the needs of young people around the world.

YMCA White Rose is part of the international Christian, ecumenical, voluntary movement for women and men seeking to emphasise the genuine involvement of young people and to share the ideal of building a human community of justice with love, peace and reconciliation for the fullness of life for all creation.

We are a local organisation… but with the global reach and expertise of YMCA worldwide!
