Our Commitment to Youth
The youth are also in help to imbibe leadership qualities through UNI-Y and HI-Y for college and school students respectively. They enable youth to bring out their innate talents and prepare them for facing the challenges ahead. The YMCA also runs community centers with night school and recreational facilities for the downtrodden in slum areas, alwats in ommunion with the substratum of society.
The National Council of YMCA’s was formed in Madras to co-ordinate the activities of the association all over the country. This again was the brainchild of Mr Mc Conaughy. In 1908, A home for Christian students was opened on Jones Street and by 1911 there were two more hostels in Chintadripet, Vepery and Royapettah.
