YMCA are celebrating their 175-year anniversary

Being part of something unique and inspiring where your words/voice matters

A group of young people and delegates from YMCA St Paul’s Group, supported by the youth work team worked in partnership with TED Talks to create some videos showing how they, as young leaders felt about the things that are passionate to them and future generations of young people.

The results of these sessions will be shared around the 175 Event, on our social media channels and also here. YMCA SPG TED participants will also be invited to speak to the YMCA Board as well as have their story shared at our AGM in November.

You can watch the highlights video to the right and also watch each of the full individual videos in the collection at the bottom of this page.
