Helping young people create a future


Our vision is of a world where young people are equipped to create a future of their choosing.  Our mission, to help get them there. 


City YMCA London provide a range of services that support young people to build a future in which they can make informed and supported choices. Young people such as Ben, Bernadette and Zubeida. Listen to them as they tell their stories. 




The TV series Undercover Boss is featuring the YMCA on Tuesday 12th August 2014 at 9pm on Channel 4.

Whilst City YMCA is not itself featured the programme gives a chance to discover more about our continuous efforts in building up a future for homeless young people. The show will feature YMCA England's Bims Alalada as she explores how funding cuts is affecting the largest and oldest youth charity in the world. You'll see other YMCAs in action in South West London, Sussex, Warrington and Southend-on-Sea.
