2015 YMCA International Conference

More than 300 YMCA delegates from Canada, Mexico, the USA and beyond will gather to explore and innovate how we develop our leadership to integrate global insight and perspective. The 2015 YMCA International Conference is dedicated to this vital task. A collaborative initiative of YMCA Canada, YMCA Mexico and YMCA of the USA, this all-important gathering is hosted by YMCA Calgary on behalf of YMCA Canada.

The goal? To strengthen our collective ability to develop leaders with a global perspective by:

  • Building knowledge about the characteristics and behaviours of leaders who hold a global outlook;
  • Sharing best practices in global strategies and education programs that engage our diverse communities in meaningful ways;
  • Connecting with colleagues from around the world to enhance collaborative initiatives that are mutually beneficial.
