The Formal Introduction!

I bet you're wondering ... what IS the International Working Group anyway?

The YMCA-YWCA of Winnipeg is part of a network of YMCAs and YWCAs located in more than 90 countries worldwide.

Through our overseas partnerships, we support community development projects such as youth employment, healthy living, community economic development, youth shelters and day care centres.

Locally, through newsletters, displays, special events (such as Peace Week and International Development Week) and fund raising, we provide opportunities for members, participants and the general public to learn about international issues and develop a sense of responsibility to each other and the global community.

Thank you for visiting our blog - we look forward to sharing with you what we're up to and how YOU can get involved!
