VIS10N – MOVEMENT IMAGES FOR THE NEXT 10 YEARS

We have a vision of the YMCA as

  • A place…

  • A journey…

  • A voice…


PLACE

The YMCA…

Is in new and surprising places

Feels welcoming, safe and full of life

Is where I feel accepted, even though we are all different

Opens my eyes to different people around me

Encourages me to express myself and get involved

Is where I meet people from churches who feel at home too

Feels like a place of faith.

JOURNEY

TheYMCA…

Helped me to start again

Raised my hopes for the future

Helped me to make choices about the direction to take

Travelled alongside me, at my own pace

Helped me to see there was so much more to life – body, mind and spirit

Is where I found the people who helped me were on a journey too.

I discovered that God was with me.

VOICE

The YMCA…

Gives me confidence and skills to speak up for myself and my friends

Gives me access to people who make decisions

Is outspoken in favour of young people

Speaks up for justice and positive values

Is listened to by leaders in my community

Explains itself clearly


So why do we remain a Christian organisation in such a diverse world?
