Welcome to YMCA India

The YMCA Movement originally began in post-Industrial England of 19th century in London in the drapery establishment of M/s Hitchcock and Rodgers in which a young apprentice of 21, George Williams, took the initiative in organizing Bible classes in his bedroom in the nature of a mutual edification of the society which brought in a cohesive group of 12 of his co-workers from equal number of denominations of the christian church to form the Young Men’s Christian Association on June 6, 1844. The National Council of YMCAs of India was formed in Madras on February 21, 1891 through the initiative of David McConaughy. The headquarters shifted to Calcutta in May, 1902. In 1964 it shifted to New Delhi, its present location.

National Headquarters relocated

Dr. Rolland Williams, National President inaugurated the relocated office of the National Council of YMCAs of India in the KT Paul Memorial Block on August 3, 2015 in the presence of Executive Committee Members, and National Secretaries. The National Office shifted for the fifth time since 1891, from ground floor of Bharat Yuvak Bhavan to the 4th floor of the KT Paul Memorial Block.  The new-look office along with Archive and Museum besides easy accessibility from Jai Singh Road and Connaught Place is all set to score over all other national alliance offices, at least in the APAY.  The entire set up is designed to achieve maximum use of space and to boost efficiency of its staff in an extremely congenial atmosphere, thanks to the décor and ambience.
