So you think you know the YMCA?
Is it your local gym, community group, hotel, or just a super-catchy "Village People" song?
Think again. Think massive global impact.
With 58 million people strong in 119+ countries, the YMCA is a youth movement unlike any other. It is fiercely committed to empowering young people everywhere, regardless of race, religion, or gender.
We are ONE movement. We move together.
So turn up the volume and get ready to enter the largest youth movement in the world like you've never seen it before.
Welcome to the #worldYMCA.

Every space is an opportunity.
It can be free
and for everyone.
It can be a home
Somewhere you belong.
A frontier we are meant to explore.
A place to find community no matter where you are.
In space we can run,
we can dance,
we can play,
we can be empowered.
OUR space has a name we've known since 1844.
A name that is part of everyone's story.
The name of a global movement
that inspires change with only 4 letters.
Welcome to the YMCA.
