Global CENTER FOR EXCELLENCE

In 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 global work. Building a strong global community begins at home.

The YMCA of San Diego County is a Global Center of Excellence Y, and is building a network that will help create programs for a globalized world—from youth leadership and teaching kids to be globally aware to local YMCA governance and viability.
  • Global Education Committee: This committee focuses executing our Going Global program, which helps develop global leaders through youth programs by incorporating fun activities where children can learn while having fun.
  • International Partnerships Committee: A group of dedicated staff and volunteers work together via working groups on strategies to engage and learn from our three international partnerships.
