global immersionIn an increasingly globalized society with rapidly changing demographics impacting communities of all sizes, YMCAs across the United States are discovering the need for – and significant advantages of – changing what it means to engage in our global communities.

Traveling with a small group of like-minded individuals with a passion for learning will make for an unforgettable adventure. The YMCA has a long history of international philanthropic exchange trips and partners with reputable change-making organizations abroad, providing participants an extraordinary cultural encounter like none other.

Our association strives to operate with a global perspective and responsibility to meet the needs of our changing communities both at home and abroad.
