Y-CORPS: SERVICE TO THE WORLD
The mission of Y-Corps: Service to the World is for Kentucky YMCA Alumni/Volunteers to practice global citizenship through service learning, cultural exchange, and exposure to global YMCA movements.
YMCAs all over the world are doing remarkable work to enhance the quality of life in the communities they serve. The Kentucky YMCA is a powerful advocate for the development of engaged, socially responsible youth and young adults. With Y-Corps: Service to the World, the Kentucky YMCA will stretch beyond our current borders, engaging in meaningful cultural exchange and establishing mutually beneficial relationships with partner YMCAs around the world.
In our effort to develop this program, the Kentucky YMCA hopes to offer those, both here and in our partner countries, who might never have the opportunity to truly experience another culture the chance to do just that. In this way, the YMCA can continue to develop socially responsible young people by fostering meaningful relationships that contribute to a broader global perspective that is more tolerant, productive, and beneficial to humanity.
