Three Reasons To Donate To YMCA
- If you believe that at risk young people should always have a roof over their head each night, you should make a donation to YMCA. Your donation has the potential to change the life of a young person who really needs the help. So why not make a small donation today and do some good for a young person in need?
- It feels good to do good. There is no better feeling then when you know you have done a good deed for someone. Your donation will help a young person who needs one, get a bed for the night. Knowing someone in need will have a roof over their head for at least one night because of your donation is guaranteed to make you feel great about yourself.
- Sponsoring a room with YMCA is a great cause. It is the youth that are the future and ensuring they are taken care of is one of the best causes out there. If you are thinking about donating some money to charity then it is hard to do better than sponsoring a room with YMCA.
YMCA is both the largest and oldest charity dedicated to working with young people across the world. Throughout the England, there are 114 YMCA’s and between them they provide approximately 10,000 beds for young people each night. Every chapter of the YMCA is a thriving and active community that works to transform the lives of young people. YMCA seeks to help these young people become active members of their communities which it calls a youth minded community approach. YMCA delivers a wide variety of community based activities and services designed to meet the needs of the local community wherever the organisation is based.
Not just a bed for the night
The national council of YMCA’s in England supports local chapters of the organisation by ensuring they implement best practices as well as fund raising for them. The council also partners with local chapters to achieve national goals. The council gives local YMCA’s a national voice by lobbying policy makers, the government and national media on their behalf. The YMCA’s national council advocates for the needs of the most vulnerable young people in the country.
Each of England’s 114 YMCA’s seek to provide for the needs of people located in their area and continuously reach out to their communities by engaging with young people who are part of groups that may be difficult to reach. YMCA’s don’t simply offer young people a bed for the night. Instead the organisations want to provide assistance to young people in the forming of training and skills which will give them the confidence to lead independent lives.
