The YMCA has historically assumed working in and with conflicts as central to its service delivery. Committed to our roots and legacy the YMCA Europe pursues peace and reconciliation as a strategic priority.
The Roots for Peace programme, ongoing since 2007, remains a best practice in this line. In the framework of this initiative the Peace Work Institute scheme was piloted during 2012 – 2015 and approvingly evaluated by an externally facilitated outcome assessment process.
This evidence-based evaluation highly recommends the YMCA Europe to repeat the series of the Peace Work Institute for the next generation of the YMCA pan-European peace-cohort.
