Global Initiatives

World Map on Face

Inspiring Change Locally and Globally

YMCAs of Cambridge and Kitchener-Waterloo are part of a global movement of YMCAs in more than 125 countries.  As part of the global network, we raise awareness about global issues and collaborate and partner with YMCAs in other countries.

YMCA Global Initiatives helps inspire all Canadians to broaden their perspectives, build their community connections and leadership skills, and actively engage in strengthening their communities, both locally and worldwide through the global YMCA network.
