Global SERVICEAs part of the YMCA of the USA World Service Campaign, we recognize our responsibility as part of a global movement. The YMCA of San Diego County is active in the international community, working with partner YMCAs in other countries to promote long-term, sustainable development. Partnerships are developed based on the mutual interests of both YMCAs. Our current partners are listed below.
Mexico - Strategic planning, technical assistance, population engagement, fundraising development, camp counselor exchanges and service projects.
Brazil – The International Youth Program includes service exchange, leadership skills, and curriculum to foster cross-cultural global learning.
South Africa – Educational and cultural exchanges, community service projects.
We strive for mutual growth, learning, and benefit of all involved in these efforts, carried out in ways which enhance our mission in San Diego County.
