Welcome to YMCA Exeter

Welcome from our leadership team, Si Johns, Aaron Beecher & Gareth Sorsby. Together they have a wealth of experience and skills to lead our organisation. Above all they have a deep commitment to our Christian Ethos & Values lived out in the daily life of YMCA Exeter. 

Since 1846 we have supported young people in their time of need through a wide range of Youth Services.

We are a local Christian charity and we are passionate about creating positive opportunities for vulnerable young people to thrive, grow in their unique skills and inspire them to become transforming influences in their communities.

As one of the oldest YMCAs in the world, we are committed to seeing individuals and communities transformed by hope despite often challenging circumstances. As a Christian charity we are motivated by the love of God and hope that everyone in the community can benefit from our services.

For the past 13 years Peter Stephenson has led YMCA Exeter forward with vision and passion. Peter recently stepped down from his role as CEO. We are sincerely grateful for his truly contagious energy which has improved the lives of  so many people across Devon (March 17).
