Welcome to YMCA Dublin
YMCA Dublin is a community-based charity operating as a social enterprise, providing services for children, young people and families. We are the second oldest YMCA in the world and 2019 sees YMCA Dublin’s 170th Birthday.
Built on a social enterprise model, all income we generate goes directly back into funding our local community projects and initiatives, youth work, youth cafe, plus one mentoring, community work, community childcare and community employment.
Since 1849 our approach has been to work through mind, body and spirit. We work in and with communities to support individuals, children and young people to develop the skills, experiences, relationships and behaviours for healthy, confident and successful futures.
Our vision is that we believe everyone should have the opportunity to belong to healthy, confident, secure and connected communities. Today, our staff and trustees are working towards an ambitious 5-year plan of sustained and quality growth as outlined in our Strategic Plan.
