YMCA World Challenge 2014
Blackburn YMCA is taking part in the YMCA World Challenge 2014. We will be one of the many international YMCAs hosting a new global challenge in order to mobilise millions of people, members and partners from all over the world.
It will be taking place on 6 June 2014 at Blackburn College Beacon Centre where we will be holding a hula hoop competition and encouraging students to sign a global declaration for the widespread support of young people - "I stand up for young people and I want their voice to be heard".
The YMCA, at an international level, have been strengthening the voices of young people in the Post 2015 Development Agenda and the new framework of global cooperation is to be launched by the United Nations in 2015.
You don't need to wait till 6 June to sign the global declaration. You can show your support now by visiting challenge.ymca.int.
