Y'S MEN and YMCA - Partners in Service
  Founded in the USA in 1922 to support a local YMCA, the Y's Men is now oriented to serving the worldwide YMCA, the largest non-governmental organisation, and through it the communities in which it is present throughout the world.
  Since the YMCA is usually known as "the Y" in the United States, and as the Y's Men movement was started there as a club of "Men of and for the Y", it was named the "Y's Men's Club". However, many women are among its members today and family participation is encouraged in numerous activities.

This is YOUR opportunity - for Involvement and Growth
