Despite a traumatic start to life, at-risk young people still nurture strong aspirations and ideals. They still have a vision for what they want to achieve in life. They still have a need to be heard, to belong and to be healthy. And they still want to contribute to their community.
City YMCA London exists to make that possible for those young people, to give them the security to make a future of their own choosing.
Yet over the last two years the numbers of young Londoners made homeless has more than doubled, often through no fault of their own. Our 5-year vision is double the number of young people that we support and to shape the external environment of hostel and move-on accommodation in London.
Friends of City YMCA London provide valuable support towards that vision. They offer advice, open doors and raise funds helping us to fulfil our mission. Friends of City YMCA London is open to applications from people known to existing friends.
If interested, we would be delighted to consider your application.
