One Million Voices

30 January 2015

A random sample of young people involved in YMCA programmes across Ireland have completed questionnaires as part of a unique global survey being carried out by the World Alliance of YMCAs. The World YMCA’s One Million Voices (OMV) project will contribute to the understanding of youth perspective on social justice issues and barriers and opportunities relating to employment, health, civic engagement, and organizational involvement. The learning will inform the policies and practices of youth-serving agencies everywhere, inspire new programmes, funders and advocates for empowering youth. YMCA Ireland will be publishing the views of Irish young people later this year.
