Our Vission

Our MOTTO

"To acknowledge the duty that accompanies every right."

This motto was adopted by Y's Men because of the tendency of most people to insist upon full enjoyment of all rights while remaining oblivious to the corresponding duties giving validity to such rights.

YSMEN History

Founded in Toledo, Ohio, USA in 1922 to support a local YMCA, Y's Men International is now oriented to serving the worldwide YMCA, the largest non-governmental youth organisation, and through it the communities in which it is present throughout the world. Since the YMCA is usually known as "the Y" in the USA, and as the Y's Men movement started there as a club of "men of and for the Y", it was named the "Y's Men's Club". Judge Paul William Alexander (pictured) was the founder of the first club together with a group of other young men. However, today women are also full members of our movement and family participation is encouraged in numerous activities. Since 1995 local affiliated clubs wishing to emphasize this openness can choose to call themselves "Y's Men and Women's Clubs" or "Y Service Clubs". Members are known as Y's Men or Y's Women.

Founder Speech

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages." Jogn De, Birthday Event
Have you ever felt worried that your party will not raise up to your guest expectations? In design, vertical rhythm is the structure that guides a reader’s eye through the content. Good vertical rhythm makes a layout more balanced and beautiful and its content more readable. The time signature in sheet music visually depicts a song’s rhythm, while for us, the lines of the baseline grid depict the rhythm of our content and give us guidelines.
