BE PART OF THE SOCIAL CHANGE. BE PART OF YMCA.
We are an excellent alternative to channel your desire to be part of the improvement of our communities. We are a non-profit organization that seeks to build a better society from young people, aligning our goals to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals 2030.
This guarantees that your contribution of time, talent or money is added to those of other people, Organizations and States for a common purpose.
For all this, we invite you to add to change society from YMCA.
BE A VOLUNTEER
Volunteering is the engine we use to strengthen communities.
We want to be an open space for young people who want to dedicate their talent and time to improve the quality of life of thousands of people in Latin America and the Caribbean through our organization.
Weekly, our young volunteers develop different activities in their community to improve the quality of life of their inhabitants: they identify job opportunities, plan, organize themselves in teams and put their ideas into practice.
Each of our local offices favors the meeting of young people who want to do something for their community and who find in YMCA, a space that houses and supports them in these ventures. Also, being a global non-profit organization, our young people have the opportunity to contact similar ones who also carry out similar actions in their home areas, to promote the exchange of learning and the discovery of new interpersonal networks.
BE A BENEFICIARY
Our social actions not only benefit the people who receive them, but also those who promote or execute them.
For this reason, more than beneficiaries, we have recipients; since by favoring a horizontal connection between people from the same community, the improvement of one of the parties will also generate a positive effect on the life of the other. In that sense, our recipients are not only people in situations of economic or social vulnerability.
We have the experience of being part of more than 400 communities in the region through community centers, shelters, hotels, camps and sports and recreational facilities that focus on building better societies. If you believe that our presence can strengthen and be useful in your area, contact us and together we will look for ways to be present in your community.
BE A DONOR
With your monthly contribution, you support and strengthen the permanent work of thousands of young people in Latin America and the Caribbean who dedicate their talent and time to promote fairer and more equitable communities.
There are many ways to be a donor: Donating money: unique or monthly contributions that will be allocated to the social work of YMCA. Extraordinary donations in disasters and natural events.
Contacts and intermediaries: if you are part of a company and can connect with its authorities and generate a strategic agreement that allows us to work together on social actions. Financing activities: that YMCA already carries out in your community for children and adolescents in vulnerable situations.
