Did you know that the YMCA's International Movement is the largest and oldest youth charity in the world? We believe that all young people deserve to have a safe, friendly and supportive environment and the opportunity to reach their full potential.

Every year, Bradford YMCA impacts on the lives of over 4000 people, intensively supports nearly 100 young people and enables over 300 young people to engage in education, skills and training, helping them to improve their opportunities in the job market.

In the last year, Bradford YMCA supported young people in achieving over 250 qualifications.
