European YMCA Assembly

2 May 2017

The Annual General Assembly took place in Edinburgh with over 100 delegates representing 28 member movements from across the continent. A strong component of this year’s Assembly were the opportunities to learn more about YMCA work with refugees and IDPs in Greece and Ukraine. There was also a number of inputs around Advocacy and how the YMCA in England & Wales in particular has been able to develop a very significant impact on government policy formulation. There was also an opportunity to learn more about the successful PlusOne mentoring programme in Scotland.
