Movement Strengthening Approach & Tools

Movement Strengthening is a key Strategic Priority of YMCA Europe. It`s a process of assisting National Movements in understanding and achieving desired changes in prioritised spheres of their work for the benefit of the target groups through self-analysis, empowerment of people and external expertise.

Movement Strengthening within YMCA Europe focuses on building the capacity of national movements in their mission, social relevance, institutional viability, financial sustainability and leadership development. 

Health Assessment, individual consultations, educational activities, assistance in strategic planning, workshops on good governance, exchange of best practices, surveys are the key tools for reaching this.

YMCA Europe’s operational activities are partially supported by the European Union through the form of an annual operational grant. The staff time dedicated to creating and curating this library is partially supported by this grant.
