YMCA Calgary > Global Initiatives

Global Initiatives

Giving here supports our partners in Ukraine and Bogotá to meet the needs in their communities.
The YMCA is a worldwide movement which exists in 119 countries around the world, reaching 58 million people.

While YMCA Calgary is actively involved in the World Alliance of YMCAs, we directly partner with the YMCA in Ukraine and Bogotá, Colombia to exchange expertise, resources and share ideas. We’re building bridges across oceans and cultures, which strengthens our YMCA Calgary team. Those experiences inform and enhance our ability to listen to communities and learn from diverse perspectives.
