In August 2019, the YMCA will celebrate 175 years of positively impacting society with a global youth gathering in London – the birthplace of the Y! Hosted by YMCA Europe in partnership with YMCA England, the World Alliance of YMCAs and YMCA of the USA, YMCA175 will bring together more than 5,000 young leaders (ages 16-35) from Ys around the world to connect with one another, to build relationships and strengthen cross-cultural understanding, celebrate 175 years of the YMCA’s impact on youth and communities around the world, and create solutions to address the pressing social issues affecting youth.
Frost Valley is excited to be sending five of our CiTs, along with Frost Valley staff members as chaperones, to YMCA175 to share their ideas that will help shape the Y’s global youth agenda. The CiTs will also go on educational, cross-cultural excursions after the event. Stay tuned to learn more about this exciting opportunity for these young leaders.
